Community leaders from around Lebanon Wednesday celebrated the successful implementation of locally led pilot projects that have been designed to prevent violent extremism. The projects, which were run by the Strong Cities network, assisted local communities in engaging those vulnerable to violent extremism, and comprised teacher training courses, workshops with religious leaders and drama and rap workshops.According to Khadije Nasser, Strong Cities' senior regional program manager, particularly vulnerable communities in Lebanon had been identified by the network in coordination with the Interior Ministry, the Danish Foreign Ministry and the municipalities themselves.One of the projects' major challenges was the fact that nothing of its kind had previously taken place in Lebanon, Nasser said.
