The start of the SPEY project will take place next week at the Can Jofresa Facilities in Terrassa. This project, which oversees the prevention of extremism and radicalization processes, will be led by the UFEC, the Catalan Hockey Federation and supported by Terrassa City Council.
The group, which is limited by prevention issues of the Covid-19, may consist of only 12 boys and girls and two teachers. Activities will begin on October 6 and end on November 20. The program will take place over 15 days, two of which will be field activities using indoor hockey as a dynamizing tool and one hour of classroom theory. There will be two 3-hour sessions throughout the program where participants can enjoy current activities such as E-sports.
The SPEY project, led by the UFEC, combines sports practice and the learning of transversal skills with the aim of minimizing the risk factors involved in the process of radicalization in young people. Understanding that extremism often uses social exclusion as a catalyst for certain hate speeches, SPEY also seeks to improve the channels of integration and support network of people at risk of social exclusion while always maintaining a cross-cutting gender perspective. throughout the project. Led by renowned academics, SPEY aims to produce tools capable of measuring the effectiveness of programs aimed at preventing extremism through sport.
