HYPER is a 2-year Erasmus+ KA2 Project that wishes to contribute in tackling the ongoing threat of violent extremism in Europe by developing an understanding and responses to the youth radicalization processes and approaches that feed it.The project will work towards the design and production of a full suite of educational resources that show the process of radicalization in action. These resources will focus on demonstrating how radicalisation can happen on the most popular digital and social media platforms where today’s young people hang out and where many are at their most vulnerable. To accompany these simulation resources the project consortium will develop a peer training programme for young people interested in being credible voices against radical extremist rhetoric and actions. To support these youth professionals HYPER will develop bespoke in-service and induction training programmes to enable them to extract the maximum benefit from the full range of proposed tools.
The design and dissemination of informational material that presents how the radicalization process can unfold complemented by training programmes guiding young people on how to act as credible voices to tackle it.
