Stand up for international solidarity
The Council of Europe is an international organization whose stated aim is to uphold human rights, democracy and the rule of law in Europe. Founded in 1949, it has 47 member states, with a population of approximately 820 million. It advocates freedom of expression and of the
media, freedom of assembly and equality.
SAME connects young people all over Europe through the Solidarity Action Day. Our social activism always goes hand in
hand with intercultural exchange. Our common goal is living in a peaceful and inclusive society. Whether you are part of a SAME member organisation or not – would your social activism benefit from new perspectives on intercultural dialogue and peacebuilding?
Then join our study session Local activism for international dialogue and global impact! During the five-day study session
in the Council of Europe’s European Youth Centre in Strasbourg, you will be one of 30 young people with different
cultural backgrounds from all over Europe who will explore the potential of the Solidarity Action Day as a foundation for
sustainable peace. By learning with and from each other about respect and cultural diversity, you will gain a new
perspective on Europe and the impact we can have together.
