Nordic Safe Cities and ISD offers collaborative workshops for cities from across the Nordic region on youth dialogue, empowerment and engagement in PVE/CVE. We call the concept KomINN.
Nordic Safe Cities offers your city sparring on how to engage and inspirere your local youth to act and strengthen the voice and actions of their voices in the municipal work against extremism, hate and social marginalisation.
Together with Larvik and Kristiansand, we have involved more than 150 young people in their cities and trained local youth to be social activists and develop local tangible campaigns and initiatives to create inclusion and safety among all youth.
Through capacity building workshops for the local youth, we connect youth activists with local artists, creatives and tech-sector experts to learn best practices, collaborate and create new, innovative campaigns.
This fall a KomINN youth manual will be produced from these experiences. Let us know if you need help or sparring on your next step on youth engagement.
ISD is an international ‘think and do’-tank that runs the world’s leading policymaker, practitioner and ‘grass-root’ CVE networks. Further, it is one of the world’s leading implementers and conveners of policy makers and practitioners on counter-extremism issues.
