UWinnipeg professor developing tool kit to prevent extremism in youth

January 5, 2022
University of Winnipeg professor Kawser Ahmed has received $400K from Public Safety Canada to develop a tool kit that will help Manitoba teachers identify and address extremism in youth. The tool kit will be developed over two years and will focus on educators of students grade 8 and up. The resources will help facilitate discussions with youth who may be reluctant to discuss the things they are seeing online with adults. “Our intention is to get young people engaged in topics and discussions with us one to one — those who are expert in this topic and those who know a little bit more than others,” said Ahmed.
