Youth of the world! Mainstreaming Global Awareness in Youth Work is a 36-month, international project supported through the Non-state Actors and Local Authorities Development Programme of the European Union (EuropeAid). It aims to expedite and ensure opportunities for youth organizations, youth facilitators and trainers, increase youth involvement in global education and learning, and mainstream global awareness within youth organizations. To accomplish these aims,“Youth of the World!” will foster public awareness among young citizens on the global interdependencies between EU and developing countries, increase the engagement of young people to promote equitable relations in the world and a sustainable way of living, and better integrate global development issues into the non- formal educational sphere regarding young people.
This project is being implemented in Cyprus by the Future Worlds Center, Bulgaria by the C.E.G.A. Foundation, Austria by Südwind Agentur, Estonia by Mondo, Lithuania by Youth Career and Advising Centre, and Scotland by Scotdec, as well as by our associate partner Young People We Care in Ghana and Sub-Saharan Africa.
