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.

A delegation of ten SAME activists spent the last two days in Strasbourg at the European Youth Event with 7.500 other young Europeans, learning more about EU policy, youth work and many more youth-related issues.
