Extremely EUnited (2020-2022)

Extremely EUnited is a project under the ISF-Police Action Grant aimed at vulnerable young people aged between 13 and 25. It provides them with an online platform where they can develop an alternative discourse in the fight against extremist propaganda. The platform aims to be a multilingual hub for the sharing of a variety of media: videos, articles, images and podcasts.

The focus is on prevention: preventing (vulnerable) young people from becoming influenced by radical or violent propaganda. This digital activism is supported by a range of offline events where young people can meet.

Foyer is participating in the Extremely Aware media campaign, one of seven campaigns established as part of the project. Extremely Aware is a combination of online and offline activities aimed at professionals who work with young people. Via lectures, workshops and debates, they can exchange their expertise and learn new ways of working as effectively as possible with young people who are showing signs of radicalisation or of turning to violence.

The other partner organisations are KU Leuven (Belgium), Szubjektiv Ertekek Alapitvany (Hungary), Kosovar Centre for Security Studies (Kosovo), EU Diaspora Council (Sweden), Plateforme de Paris and Jeunactio (France), TIA Formazione and Associazione Culturale Istituto Tevere (Italy), Arco Forum (Spain), Stichting European Foundation for South Asian Studies and Platform INS (Netherlands) and Eesti People to People (Estonia).

The coordinator is Intercultural Dialogue Platform.
