Who we are
SAME, ‘Solidarity Action Day Movement in Europe’, is a European network that brings together several youth organisations carrying out an annual Action Day. During this day, pupils get the chance to exercise a job of their choice instead of going to school. Their salaries are used to support youth-related projects all over the world.
What we do
SAME encourages young people to stand up for a fair and democratic world by taking up social commitment and showing solidarity. We believe in the power of young people and want to make their voices heard. In this context, we spread the idea of the Action Day all over Europe and support new Action Day initiatives.
Furthermore, the SAME member organisations strengthen each other through the exchange of best practices. They organise common actions to raise awareness, promote solidarity and youth participation.
Representatives of our member organizations met in Brussels to sign the articles of association, an important step towards formalising SAME as an international youth organization! A huge thank you to Eubelius Advocaten and Berquin Notarissen for their help with all the legal intricacies!
