The Youth Exchange “Together for SDGs” wants to introduce the subject of Sustainable Development to young people and make them think and act about SDG’s, in order to make them happen. Each group will be composed by 5 youngsters (between 18 to 22 years old) and one leader. The Portuguese group will have 2 leaders. In total there will be 43 participants in the youth exchange that will take place from 1 to 14 July 2022. During this time, the young people will take part in several activities of non-formal learning linked to the Sustainable Development Goals, in which we want to explore each of the 17 goals and the question of sustainability in all its areas. There will be activities like work groups, ateliers, sport activities, cultural visits, volunteering actions and a street action, regarding the Goals (eg. Poverty, Health, Education, Equality and Inclusion, Environment, etc). The young people will have the chance to know the local community and to have contact with the Portuguese culture and habits and share at the same time their own culture with the other members of the group. In the end of the youth exchange we hope that the young people become more aware of their role in the society and about the importance of Intercultural Dialogue to reach one more sustainable World from all to all. We also hope that this can be the beginning of several individual and group projects in each participant home town in order to contribute to the achievements of the Sustainable Development Goals.
