Confronting the Drivers of Violent Extremism

PDev II youth filmmakers created "Moussa", the story of a young man grappling with influences toward violence, and what it takes to overcome them.

Through filmmaking, participatory theater, radio programming, social media and other community forums, PDev II helped young people and their communities understand the causes and consequences of violent tendencies. Using these mediums, PDev II actors were able to reach far beyond their communities and, with social technologies, increase and unite voices that turn away from violence and extremism and look toward community leadership and the building of a better future for themselves and their communities.
