With the official virtual launch of UN Office of Counter-Terrorism's latest innovative online tool, the Connect & Learn Platform, UNOCT will tap into the power of the global community utilizing a world-wide network of experts, academics, and members of civil society, to harness their experiences, expertise and knowledge in order to provide cutting edge learning, training and a platform for information-sharing and exchange of good practices.
The Connect & Learn Platform launch event will demonstrate how it supports UNOCT programmatic efforts through an online capacity-building delivery by acting as a force multiplier, and unveiling its unique Communities of Practice Forum. The event will also feature a 'whole-of-society' approach to counter-terrorism (CT) and preventing and countering violent extremism (P/CVE) efforts with guest speakers from UN Member States, civil society organizations, private sector and academia. It will also highlight successful case studies from three UNOCT programmes that will showcase the Connect & Learn Platform as an innovative tool designed to help train and educate while providing space to foster a world-leading multi-dimensional data and information hub in CT and P/CVE. Similarly, the platform will provide a user-friendly forum for further exchanges across thematic issues connecting the counter-terrorism community in order to strengthen cooperation. UNOCT will work continuously with stakeholders to develop new, innovative and updated content.
