Plant Awareness to Grow Solidarity! ESC Volunteer Programme 2019/2020

Plant awareness to grow solidarity! That’s the theme of our volunteers’ new project this year. Three young people from Ukraine and Belarus will be hosted at our organisation and offer their insights and curiosity by hosting several thought provoking evenings over the course of the next 10 months.

This year’s project aims to strengthen young people’s engagement as promoters of intercultural dialogue and social inclusion across Europe. In times where rising financial uncertainties and undercurrents of right-wing extremism causing waves of anti-migrant violence and loom over a potentially vibrant community of European youth, we want to explore and debate innovative solutions to ensuring the active participation of underprivileged groups in civil society. We want to take this opportunity to share what we can all around and about social justice and inclusion, solidarity, anti-racist and anti-oppression community-based education work. Join us!
