Who we are

SAME stands for ‘Solidarity Action Day Movement in Europe’. This movement includes several European organizations that carry out an annual Solidarity Action Day. During this day, pupils get the chance to exercise a job of their choice instead of going to school. Their salaries are used to support youth-related projects in the whole world.

Here you can get to know more about us and our member organisations.

Member Organisations

SAME consists of 11 organizations in 10 European countries. 



Once the idea of the SAME network was consolidated, we started thinking about how we could work efficiently as a group.

Vision & mission

As active citizens, young people act in solidarity with their peers and stand up for democracy, equity, human rights and intercultural understanding.

Principles and values

All member organisations are different, however they are united through different principles and values.


The concept of a Solidarity Action Day dates back to 1963, when a group of Swedish youngsters launched ‘en dag för Dag’.
