Beyond The Lines

A Peacemaking Project by Wevyn M.

What is the injustice we are solving?

Beyond the lines is an online insurgency in form of a blog to counter the narratives of violent extremists. The main aim is to provide a platform for sharing alternative and counter narratives of violent extremism and terrorism. The platform will inspire people to think, speak and act beyond the lines of violent extremists’ narratives through educating people on the consequences of radicalization and violent extremism. It is about empowering the minds of young people and freeing them from the ideologies of violent extremists. Radicalization on social media has been on the increase thus the need to create an online platform ( Beyond the lines) to discredit extreme narratives

Our Compassionate Solution:

To solve this injustice of Insecurity; violent extremism and terrorism
we will address The ideologies used to radicalise and recruit young people as pepetrators
by Raising awareness and disseminating counter and alternative narratives of violent extremism through social media

Welcome to Peace First Community, Wevyn! Thanks for sharing your project with us. What is the name of the Human Rights Organization that you work at, please?

Countering Violent Extremism is a big issue to tackle! The "Beyond The Lines" Platform is something that you are running since before or what? Please share with me the link to your blog; I am interested to read how do you counter the narratives of violent extremists.

I would encourage you to write your compassionate insight and try to make it as clear as you can, so other Peace First members would understand it better!

Hey what kind of updates? just to clarify.

Otherwise, I am trying to make my website as interactive as possible and add a few features to the website that will allow users to download resources such as books, audios, photos, videos that will educate them on countering violent extremism. I would wish to do a few changes to the design and outlook to make it more appealing. I do not have any kind of web development or graphic design skills. I also wish to grow my audience to be able to reach as many young people as possible with these narratives. My blog is www.beyondlines.org
