Start an initiative
Supporting Solidarity Action Day initiatives is highly important for us. The Solidarity Action Day is a unique opportunity for young people to show solidarity. If you are a youngster and want to start a Solidarity Action Day in your country or region, please contact us. We can assist you with the experience of all SAME member organisations, offer workshops and created the Start-Up Kit to support you. Furthermore, you can join our annual Summer Academies and visit single organisations.
Every year since 2012, we have been pleased to welcome observers of the SAME network to our Summer Academy. These are young people from different countries who are interested in creating their own Solidarity Action Day initiative and joining SAME. Attending a Summer Academy 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.
