Methodological Guide

The CommUnity Project’s Methodological Guide is a comprehensive document on the development and application of the Design Thinking Method in a civil society project focused on the prevention of radicalisation by organizing artistic and cultural activities and events to strengthen local communities. The Methodological Guide provides a framework and suggestions on how to implement the Design Thinking Method but also addresses and reflects the  responses (both positive and negative) from the partner organizations, the consequent development in the CommUnity Project, and how programs and activities throughout the CommUnity Project were tailormade to ensure the best impact in each participating country and local community. Moreover, the Methodological Guide contains a master list of activities that can be conducted with youth, youth workers, trainers and other relevant stakeholders working in the field of the prevention of youth radicalisation. The activities are categorized in the Design Thinking phases (Empathise, Define, Ideate, Prototype and Test) and stimulate its users to empathise (both with young people and colleagues), rethink and reshape current challenges, and create and try innovative solutions.

The CommUnity Project Toolkit is a document with plenty of activities to organize and conduct with young people. Created by the digital and media literacy expert Paul Smulki, the Toolkit is an incredible resource for today’s teachers, youth workers, civil society workers and other relevant stakeholders, featuring exercises, activities, quizzes and thought experiments that encourage young people to reflect on their opinions, construct a grounded perspective, and listen to other opinions and ideas.
