The University Engagement Project is a voluntary project led by young people for young people. We deliver events in universities where young survivors of Terrorism, former extremists and practitioners talk about their experience in relation to terrorism/counter terrorism. Those aged 18-25, and are most vulnerable, but otherwise hard to reach. It helps to respond to and reduce anti-prevent sentiments in universities and assists in raising the historically low referral rates at universities.
- Why are young people more vulnerable to radicalisation?
- How can we safeguard young people from being drawn into terrorism?
- How effective engagement with young people ensures that the next generation have a culture of awareness, both for preventing radicalisation and for emergency responses to terrorism.
