DIALECT 2 “Combating youth raDIcalizAtion: Building communities of toLEranCe combining fooTball with media and digital literacy” having a twofold aim, combining the power of sports and football in specific, with media literacy. With the proliferation of mass media and social media information nowadays, a pursue to raise the critical thinking and self-determination of adolescents, whose identity construction is overlapping between offline and online interactions, seems more needed than ever. An aspect that was particularly raised during the pandemic as well.
Within the framework of the project aim is to train adolescents, football3 mediators and trainers in related areas, so that youngsters could take informed decisions, breaking existing stereotypes (ex. female and disabled athletes) and racial discrimination (ex. under- representing ethnic minorities) and responding to societal challengers, countering intolerant beliefs and attitudes both inside and outside the football court. In the long-term, those informed adolescents will act as agents of change addressing manifestations of racism and xenophobia at community level, promoting their resilience.
DIALECT 2 aims to enhance, through specific activities:
• the critical thinking and resilience of adolescents to extremist values and
• the capacities of mediators & trainers (sports professionals, coaches, CSOs) on building media and digital literacy skills of adolescents through football3.
