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
In times of growing Euroscepticism, 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 Solidarity Action Day all over Europe and support new Action Day initiatives.
Furthermore, we offer training and education for our members. Besides that, the SAME member organisations strengthen each other through the exchange of experiences and best practices.
The Act.ival for Future brings together young people aged 16 to 23 from all over Europe for one weekend in the Hanseatic city Lübeck, Germany. Are you a member of a youth organisation, currently starting your own initiative or a young person who wants to make your voice heard on things that matter to you? Act.ival for Future is the space for you.
