ACT NOW is a ‘table top’ activity that involves students stepping into the shoes of counter terrorist officers. It is designed to stimulate debate around the very sensitive subject of violent extremism and is aimed at young people at Key Stage 4 and above. The purpose of the exercise is to empower individuals to have the confidence to take on counter terrorism dilemmas and understand the importance of decisions made based upon the information they are given. It gives participants the opportunity to debate choices both independently and collaboratively based on perceived facts and weigh up the consequences which follow decision making as part of a group tackling a terrorist incident.
