PROTECT THE PLACES OF WORSHIP | HARMONIZING DIVERSITY
Protone aims to increase the security posture of the places of worship in Europe through cooperation between different faith-based organisations.
PROTONE has been proposed in the context of the growing need for greater guarantees of protection of public spaces, in particular places of worship, due to the increasing wave of terrorist attacks and intolerant acts on European soil.
The consortium is composed of 8 organisations from Southern Europe (Italy and Spain), Western Europe (Belgium and the Netherlands) and Central Europe (Germany).
The project adopts a holistic and comprehensive approach that requires taking into account all the different aspects related to the buildings and communities to be protected, including a pluralistic definition of threats that should be extended to non-violent acts as well including verbal assaults, vandalism, burglary and arson.
Within the project, a survey has been developed to measure and evaluate the social and cultural attitudes of individuals towards places of worship.
Report An Incident
The project actively commits to fighting any threats or menaces to places of worship and creating effective mechanisms for reporting suspicious behaviour which may damage individuals or facilities.
Nowadays, under-reporting is a challenge in the fight against religious hatred, and engaging community members in early identification and reporting is critical. Help us to fight intolerance and extremism.
