Target Audience
LIVE intends to benefit people with leadership potential who are well connected in their communities, actively contribute to positive change, and who are motivated to make an impact in preventing violent extremism. It is designed for persons whose potential can be leveraged, rather than for persons who are already experts in the area of preventing violent extremism.

The course is intended to strengthen participants’ skills and knowledge so they can further contribute to building the resilience of local communities to VERLT, in line with the Do No Harm Principle.
