In a world fraught with challenges, a group of NGOs embarked on a journey that transcended borders and united hearts. "A Part of EU 2030," an innovative project spearheaded by partners from Malta, Spain, Greece and Serbia, stood as a beacon of hope and action, breathing life into the United Nations' 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
As the world collectively strives to address pressing global issues, the "A Part of EU 2030" project took a remarkable stance. Bringing together 50 passionate youths – 10 from each partner country – the project breathed life into the concept of "A Path of EU Local Youth Council." Their mission? To curate transformative activities and workshops aligned with the 17 SDGs, shaping a roadmap for a more sustainable future.
In February 2023, Athens became the canvas for the project's culmination. Vibrant workshops and activities, meticulously designed to align with the SDGs, were brought to life. The event painted a vivid picture of innovation, awareness, and empowerment, echoing the values that the project had been rooted in.
Handbook: From Ideas to Impact
The hallmark of this journey was the creation of a comprehensive handbook, encapsulating the essence of the project and the profound impact of the workshops. This invaluable resource, soon to be available in Spanish, Serbian and Greek, will serve as a guiding light for educators, activists, and change-makers who seek to catalyze positive change within their communities.
Amplifying Impact through Social Media
In the digital age, the power of social media cannot be understated. "A Part of EU 2030" embraced this truth, launching a resounding social media campaign that resonated across platforms. Figures don't lie – Overall, the campaign reached over 20,000 people on TikTok, Facebook, Instagram, the project's official website and the mailing list combined. With compelling content that highlighted the journey, challenges, and successes, the campaign became a testament to the project's dynamism and global impact.
