About the Project

Time left to apply








Even though the definition of radicalisation is in continuous debate, it generally designates the process by which a person ends up supporting radical ideas in opposition to the current socio-political or religious reality. Individuals either help or oppose vehemently progressive social changes and take on violent and non-violent forms, leading to terrorism. Through this project, we want to understand the discrepancy between radicals and reformers and realise the importance of moderate opinions, which do not exceed a degree of in-depth understanding of sensitive social issues. 

The project aims to reduce radicalism and extremism among young people.


1. Cultivating objective, moderate, factual critical thinking;

2. Spreading awareness of the social, economic, cultural and educational mechanisms that lie behind the situations of radicalism and extremism;

The selection of each national group will be done by each partner organisation based on the applications they received online and offline at their headquarters. The selection results will be announced on email, at the latest of 1st of September 2022.

1. The participation costs (accommodation, food, materials, etc.) will be covered by the organizers. Also, the transportation will be reimbursed according to the attached Info-pack and Erasmus+ regulations;

2. The selected candidates must advance the amounts necessary to cover the transport costs to the place of the course, using the cheapest means of transportation: carpooling, train ticket (2nd class), bus, flight ticket (economy class, low cost), etc.;

This project fully implements a practice of GREEN TRAVEL, in line with priorities set within the Erasmus+ Programme guide for 2021 – 2027, so the participants are supposed to travel with less polluting means of transportation (carpooling, train, bus), but in case of no suitable options, flight tickets can be also bougth. 

3. Travel insurance is mandatory and must be covered at your own expense;

4. The partner organisations might ask for a contribution fee (a maximum of 50 euro) as a co-financing of the participant to the project (not applied to Euroactive volunteers). You will be announced about the certain amount of this cost together with the selection results.
