In human history, young people have always been the first to stand up for the positive change of narrative in society. The 21st century is no exception.
The UN 2030 Agenda and its “Sustainable Development Goals” are here to deliver improvements to our world in different departments, for example, education, health, clean energy, environmental challenges and gender equality issues. As the new challenges of the modern world seem to be overwhelming, the responsibility of young workers lies in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals for a better future.
The Sustainable Development Generation is led by young leaders. The Erasmus+ Project connected young workers from Portugal, Egypt, Italy, Slovakia, Spain, Jordan and Greece who were taught through non-formal good educational practices about the SDGs. They were involved in the first phase of a 2-phase Training Course from 14th to 22nd October 2021 in Beja, Portugal, while the second will take place from 7th to 14th December 2021 in Cairo, Egypt.
After the end of Phase 1, leaders are asked to implement SDGs in their communities and realities, calibrating short local activities that they will later share and evaluate in Phase 2. In Phase 2 (Cairo, Egypt: 7-14 December), participants will have the chance to evaluate the results and truly practice the skills acquired in the first part.
This project was approved by the Europe for Citizens Program under the reference: 2019-3-PT02-KA105-006472.

Wednesday was full of cooperation in the groups. We started by preparing the Local Campaign for every particular country. In the national teams, we tried to figure out ways to promote SDGs agenda in our area. As team members we came up with several creative ideas of possible positive footprint and campaigns. The afternoon was focused on possibilities of Education for Sustainable Development. The meaning of “Taking action” was discussed with emphasis on Conherence, Cooperation, Coresponsibility, Equity and equality, Social justice, Non-discrimination, Participation and Solidarity. The Project continued with some creative brainstorming on making an impact in the real world. We prepared websites, social media content and the artistic promotion of our project. Now, we cannot wait for the future steps!
During 2 months (October and November 2021) the participants of the training course in Beja developed 10 Events on Sustainable Development Goals. 20 international facilitators were involved, in 7 different countries, and a total of 160 young participants…. Add more information about the workshops
