Extreme Dialogue can be delivered by teachers, external Extreme Dialogue facilitators or young people themselves.
Those working with young people have told us that they find approaching issues around hate or extremism difficult and don’t always feel sufficiently equipped to hold constructive conversations.
The Extreme Dialogue project takes these concerns into account and provides a structured framework that suits different groups, objectives and sensitivities. Schools and other practitioners can contact us to request Extreme Dialogue training workshops and in-classroom session delivery to young people in schools and community settings.
Training can also be provided to young people to implement a peer-to-peer model of Extreme Dialogue.
Our aim is to equip practitioners with absolute confidence and a means of answering difficult questions through a series of structured educational resources.
WHAT IS EXTREME
Extreme Dialogue is a cutting-edge project designed to provide young people with the tools they need to challenge extremism in all its forms.
Through a series of compelling films telling the true stories of those affected by extremism, with supporting educational resources, it provides a range of perspectives on how violence, exclusion and hate change lives.
Designed to be delivered by teachers, other education or youth practitioners, external facilitators or young people themselves, the free Extreme Dialogue films and educational resources can be supported by training workshops.
The training guides practitioners through the films and accompanying educational resources, fostering a confident approach to using the materials and the ability to train other practitioners and young people to use them.
