The project focuses on the following topics:

  • Democracy & human rights
  • Fighting anti-Semitism & anti-Islamism
  • Gender equality & rights to sexuality
  • Climate change

We target youth professionals such as youth workers, youth trainers, mentors of European Solidarity Corps’ volunteers, and others working with youth such as social workers and educators. The end beneficiaries of our project are young people with a focus on those with fewer opportunities.
