IONA and Courage


  • Content development and delivery
  • News and current awareness resource
  • Promoting peaceful activism

Indy collects issues-focused content and shares it to social media groups and pages. The intention is to provide a current awareness service and to present authentic narratives, (from a variety of angles), for self-negotiated discussion on pages and within groups.



  • Counter-extremism
  • Digital counter-narratives
  • Social media activism

The radicalisation of extremists of all types is rooted in personal distress and social isolation. Potential solutions include, and likely call for, systemic approaches to building alternative support networks.
