Call for participants ‒ Online campaigning in P/CVE: results & lessons learned from the Civil Society Empowerment Programme

Everything you’ve always wanted to know about online campaigning! Over the past four years, the Civil Society Empowerment Programme (CSEP) has supported 20 diverse projects in their online P/CVE campaigns across the different EU Member States.

In a series of five webinars, these EU-funded projects will share their results and lessons learned. Join one or more webinars to learn about these online campaigns and how to start your own and about what is being done in your country, or generally more about P/CVE campaigns.

On 18 May (10:00 - 11:30 AM CEST) three projects (RAGE, DECOUNT, CICERO) will share their campaigns and lessons learned. Register here by 14 May. These online campaigns are active in Poland, France, Greece, Austria, Germany and Italy.

  • TheGame Changer or RAGE (Radical Awareness Game Engagement) project seeks to empower NGOs from all over Europe to engage young people in issues affecting their local communities and to build up their resilience to violent extremism through online and offline campaigns and smart use of technology. The target audience are NGOs working with youth and youth (ages 12– 25), for project partners from Poland, France, Greece and Netherlands.
  • The DECOUNT Promoting democracy and fighting extremism through an online project aims to design and disseminate an online campaign including deradicalisation and prevention online resources; a video game structured along binary decisions leading to radicalisation or maintaining resilience; and a video with alternative narratives. The target audience are youth from Austria or Germany.
  • The CICERO – Counter-narrative Campaign for Preventing Radicalisation project’s overall goal is to develop and implement a counter-narrative communication campaign aimed at preventing radicalisation leading to violent extremism. CICERO’s target audience are individuals vulnerable to being radicalised by extremist ideologies, messages and narratives spread from four different types of extremist groups (Islamist, far-right, far-left and single-issue radicalisation) in Italy, Belgium and Spain.

On 20 May (10:00 - 11:30 AM CEST) two projects (YouthRightOn and Do One Brave Thing) will share their campaigns and lessons learned. Register here by 16 May. These online campaigns are active in Bulgaria, Romania, Italy, Hungary and Poland.

  • The Resilient Youth against Far-Right Extremist Messaging Online (YouthRightOn) project aims to strengthen prevention and address underlying factors contributing to far-right radicalisation through putting forward alternative narratives and promoting critical thinking, open-mindedness and civic engagement. The target audience is youth between the ages of 14 and 19, residing in Bulgaria.
  • Do One Brave Thing (DOBT) aims to empower young people to challenge extremist narratives experienced in their daily lives. It also provides media literacy skills and software tools to investigate online sources of information and think more critically, enabling young people to develop counter-narrative campaigns to challenge hate speech and extremist rhetoric online and to encourage young people to non-violently address their political grievances through policy advocacy. The campaigns focus on youth (ages 18– 26) and/or youth workers in Poland, Hungary, Romania and Italy.
