ABOUT THE PROJECT
PRECOBIAS will enhance digital resilience and critical thinking. It centres around the mental processes and biases at stake when youngsters are faced with extremist discourse online.
Who do we turn to? Our social campaign will first target young people who may be at risk of radicalisation, or those who have already been radicalised. We want to help them to better know themselves, by revealing the mental processes and cognitive biases which are at the basis of their interpretation and analysis.
Our second audience are teachers and social and youth workers who work closely with the vulnerable young people and could find our research and resources useful in their work.
We will also organize a one-day Training Programme for civil-society organisations who will, in turn, train teachers and social and youth workers at the local level.
