PRAISE project aims to address the current challenges and needs of preventing radicalization and violent extremism within European school environments by developing students’ socio-ecological resilience as well as the needs of teachers and school educators by equipping them with innovative tools for them to effectively support their students throughout this journey. PRAISE will adopt a multidisciplinary approach towards building school students’ resilience, integrating concepts such as critical thinking, citizenship education, global citizenship, intercultural dialogue, media and information literacy and digital literacy. Furthermore, PRAISE will increase the capacity of school institutions to increase socio-ecological resilience through the PRAISE Toolkit, which will include practical information on how they can apply PRAISE outputs in their every-day work as well as extra resources and tools to support their students and achieve “radicalization-free” European school environments. The PRAISE e-learning platform and digital board game will ensure a maximum level of transferability of the project’s main results (training material, Toolkit) and, thus, make them available for every European school student and teacher. Moreover, in combination with the newly established PRAISE Competences Pathway, the capacity of European policy makers to develop effective prevention policies and intervention scenarios against radicalization through school education shall be strengthened.
