As a membership-based organisation, EPTO runs every year an annual event for its member organisations in order to regularly meet, assess their needs and capacities, and support them with tailored services. In a context of rising extremism worldwide and in the aftermath of the horrifying terror attacks that are taking place notably in Europe, thanks to the European Youth Foundation of the Council of Europe, EPTO launched the third edition of this event in Berlin (8-9/04/2017) to open the floor to youth workers and practitioners to address how the issue of extremism could be better tackled through peer education.
