    • Project

      Cases of religious extremism have rapidly increased in Indonesia over the past couple of years. This has eroded the values of diversity and pluralism, negatively impacting religious and sexual minorities. Religious extremism greatly affects the youth as it could shape their future ideologies and world views.

      Aliansi Remaja Independen(ARI)’s objective for this project is to improve the capacity of youth (15 -24) so they can be positive agents of change to suppress religious extremism. The project enables ARI to:

      1.Strengthen the capacity of selected ARI members on the understanding of religious extremism and how to tackle it;
      2. Develop a support mechanism and tools to enable young activists to empower other youth in suppressing religious extremism;
      3. Raise awareness and build a network to gain support from other youth and prominent religious figures/leaders.

      ARI members undergo a training of trainers to strengthen their capacities in meaningful youth participation, advocacy, and gender equality. Learning resources are developed for online sessions with youth activists from various religious and gender backgrounds. Continues dialogue and networking identifies opportunities for collaboration, especially in a roadshow to raise awareness in religious schools. A report is shared with government ministries and other religious groups to advocate for adoption of best practices against religious extremism.
