The power of storytelling: alternative narratives in Education, Internet and Media

VUB-IES is involved in the EU-funded H2020 Mindb4Act research project targeting, among other, at creating innovative solutions for tackling radicalisation and violent extremism in Europe. On 21 June 2018 we are organising a kick-off meeting for launching the collaborative ecosystem - a Living Lab. We would like to bring together multispectral Belgian stakeholders (LEAs, local administration, NGOs, researchers, educators and other) dealing with various aspects of radicalization. Altogether we will discuss how we can all do better in jointing our mutual efforts from early prevention to intervention in diverse societal settings.
