Start the Change

Together with European partners, Think Global is launching a new project, Start the Change, to support young people to take action against extremism.

In collaboration with partners from Croatia, Slovenia and Italy, we will be working with teachers and school students to understand young people’s views on extremism and their ideas for developing and promoting a more cohesive society.

The project will work with secondary schools across Europe (including 10 here in the UK) to carry out focussed research with students, provide teachers with professional development and produce classroom resource focussed on exploring themes of identity and the current challenges that young people face. This is a great opportunity to focus on the views of young people in this challenging debate, and use the findings to support teachers in creating safe spaces for discussing the often difficult and sometimes controversial topics around radicalisation, diversity and tolerance.
