Leeds PREVENT Conference - Windows into Extremism

This is a unique opportunity to listen to the experiences of three former extremists who were drawn into the world of hate and violence.  The personal testimonies about their journeys will highlight the key issues that drew them in to such groups and their seductive narrative, as well as help attendees understand where an intervention could have made a difference and prevented them from moving into extremism.

The full day conference will also provide attendees with the opportunity to attend 2 workshops from the following:

  • The current threat from far right extremist groups
  • The current threat from international terrorist groups
  • Tackling controversial issues in the classroom
  • The role of social media in radicalisation
  • Supporting vulnerable individuals through the eyes of an Intervention Provider

The conference will take place on Thursday 30th November 2017 from 9:30am – 4:00pm is open to all to attend. If you are interested in attending please email prevent@leeds.gov.uk and they will send you information on how to register.
