SAME - Solidarity Action Day Movement in Europe - is the network of European youth organisations carrying out an annual Solidarity Action Day. On this day, pupils get the chance to work in a job of their choice instead of going to school. They donate their salaries to youth-related projects from all over the world.

How we deal with the current situation (Covid-19/Coronavirus)

In order to contain the Corona epidemic, many states are closing their borders and impose curfews. This also has direct consequences for the work of SAME and every of its member organisations.

Act.ival for Future 2020 now happening in October!

The Act.ival for Future creates a platform to exchange ideas and to inspire each other. This year’s event is about youth activism and its different ways of interpretation. Innovative workshops and stimulating debates are a major part of the programme. You will discover new perspectives to empower change in your community, strengthen your competences and have a lot of fun!

What we do

In times of growing Euroscepticism, SAME encourages young people to stand up for a fair and democratic world by taking up social commitment and showing solidarity. We believe in the power of young people and want to make their voices heard. In this context, we spread the idea of the Solidarity Action Day all over Europe and support new Solidarity Action Day initiatives.

Furthermore, we offer training and education for our members. Besides that, the SAME member organisations strengthen each other through the exchange of experiences and best practices.
