“Extremely Together Against Extremism” is a youth exchange between young people from 8 different countries of the European Union and Neighboring Partner countries which will be realized by a group of young active people in Armenia. Youth Exchange is a joint venture of young people with different backgrounds who live in different European countries and face similar challenges – radicalization and extremism.
