Extreme Dialogue is a unique project for young people that supports the development of critical thinking skills about, and resilience against, extremism in all its different forms. High quality films are accompanied by supplementary activities and discussion sessions, which provide a cross section of reference points helping to develop confidence in talking about difference, community tensions and extremism. It provides a suite of unique and engaging resources, including compelling first-person video testimonies from people who have been profoundly impacted by prejudice, marginalisation, hate, and violence. These videos are supported by tools that enable facilitators, and those working with young people to open-up discussion and debate on this challenging subject-matter and help interrogate this issue critically. Uniquely, the project looks at extremism ‘in the round’; ensuring young people understand the challenges extremism poses today. Extreme Dialogue cultivates essential critical thinking skills amongst young people that are universally transferable to other subject-matters and areas of their lives; ensuring it has a longevity outside the classroom and beyond project delivery. Extreme Dialogue can be delivered by teachers to students or, via a student-led delivery model and offers a modular approach that can be tailored to fit the different needs of groups or to a curriculum. Face-to-face training is a core part of the project and is designed to enable teachers to make the most of the resources and give them the confidence to use them.

Extreme Dialogue is a partnership between the Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Peace Foundation, global counter-extremism organisation the Institute for Strategic Dialogue (ISD), and filmmakers Duckrabbit.
