Start an initiative
Supporting new Action Day initiatives is highly important for us. The Action Day is a unique opportunity for young people to show solidarity. If you are a youngster and want to start a new Action Day in your country, please contact us. We can assist you with the experience of all SAME member organisations and offer workshops to support you. Furthermore, you can join our annual summercamps and visit single organisations.
Every year since 2012, we have been pleased to welcome observers of the SAME network to our Summer Camp. These are young people from different countries who are interested in creating their own Action Day initiative and joining SAME. Attending a Summer Camp allows them to get to know a large number of people in a short amount of time and to take home 'best practices' and other inspiration from all the different member organizations.
You may also want to take a look at the SAME Quality Guidelines. This document will give you an overview of the aspects you might have to consider one day when organising your own Action Day. Youth empowerement and participation are very important for us. Therefore, a high quality Action Day organisation should work for and should be run by youngster. Its projects should also be carried out by young people.
