COMMIT- COMMunIcation campaign against exTremism and radicalisation is a European project funded by the European Commission under the Internal Security Fund – Civil Society Empowering Programme, coordinated by Centro per lo Sviluppo Creativo Danilo Dolci, in cooperation with the University of Palermo and other 4 organisations in Europe.
The project started in January 2020 and will end in June 2022.
COMMIT aims to prevent & dissuade vulnerable young people in 4 partner countries (Italy, Austria, The Netherlands, Greece) from extremism, radicalism & terrorism, providing them with skills relevant to co-create counter-narratives challenging extremist online propaganda and alternative narratives promoting democratic values, tolerance & cooperation, and to identify & resist extremist online content.
COMMIT addresses also university students, media professionals, CSOs, to improve their capacity to meet the new challenges linked to extremist online propaganda & violent radicalisation, training them through a tailor-made capacity-building programme in alternative & counter-narratives for preventing radicalism.
COMMIT adopts a trans-medial approach combining online campaigning & face-to-face activities (workshops, contest, events).
