The StopR Q-mark Info Day was held in Wroclaw, Poland, on the 26th of March 2018.
The event gathered 150 stakeholders to which to present the StopR project and activities, as well as the first version of the Quality-Mark Criteria of the project.
Through various engaging activities, including a graffiti workshop, a theatrical performance, and a conference, featuring university experts from Warsaw, Cracow, and Krzyżowa, the event encouraged the discussion around youth radicalization and ways to counter it.
The project “Stop Youth Radicalization” (StopR) aims to develop a transnational quality mark to be granted to the best methods in preventing radicalization. The Q-mark criteria are the first important leap in establishing the StopR Q-mark certificate, and will soon be available on the StopR platform. There, youth organisations will have the opportunity to submit descriptions of their non-formal learning methods in the area of youth radicalization, pass through an online evaluation and if matching the Q-mark criteria, receive a quality mark, which will distinguish them across youth workers’ professional communities, national and local authorities, training certification bodies and various funding agencies and donors.
The project is implemented under the framework of the European Commissions’ Programme Erasmus+, within Key Action 2: Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices, Action: Strategic partnership for youth. Bulgaria is in partnership with 4 other partners from 4 different countries – Hungary, Slovenia, Poland, and Czech Republic.
