MAD you. You can Make a Difference!

We are very happy to announce that we have a new European Solidarity Corps project approved! MAD you. You can Make a Difference and will involve 50 volunteers from 5 partner organizations from Italy, Spain, Turkey, Morocco and Romania. Each voluntary activity will last for 2 weeks. The main idea of the project comes from the need to improve the living environment, and we are going to start from the cities where the activities will take place: Ankara/Beypazari (Turkey), Barcellona Pozzo di Gotto (Italy), Ferrol (Spain) and Guelmim/Laqsabi Targoust (Morocco). 

Implementing the project, we would expect to create a sense of responsibility for the target involved and to give our small contribution against global warming, water shortages, heat waves, tsunamis and floods. Also, we would like to give our contribution to develop a sense of belonging of citizens to their communities.

If you care about the environment and you are a multiculturality lover, for sure you would love to participate in the project activities. Stay tuned!

KA2 EllE Empower - learn - led - Expand: YOUth4SDGs changing the rules transforming our world

Young people need to learn, acquire competence to build inclusive sustainable models of development. They need to shape the vision of the future to create it. Locally, young people are affected by the lack of opportunity by society & labour market, they lack knowledge and need to develop skills about sustainable methods of development. Our working experience with young people shows that they are not familiar with SDGs, partners experience affirms that this is true especially in small environment. "EllE Empower - learn - led - Expand: YOUth4SDGs changing the rules transforming our world" is an Erasmus Plus KA2 strategic partnership in the youth field organized by 5 youth organisations from Italy (coordinator), Greece, Portugal, Romania and Serbia.

Personally it felt like an interdisciplinary Innnovathon in which the organisers offered us a complex experience. But, let me tell you more about my experience.
