We are glad to announce the opening of the IMAGINE – the second Call for Ideas and Award Competition “Active Young Citizens for Sustainable Development in Central European Initiative and Adriatic Ionian Initiative Areas”.
This initiative is designed to stimulate the engagement of youth of CEI and AII areas in the framework of the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
The objective of the initiative is to raise awareness of high school students on the UN Agenda 2030 and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through a learning process and the participation in this Call, aimed at meeting the following objectives:
- Encouraging the understanding of the principles and structure of UN Agenda 2030 and its 17 SDGs;
- Advocating the role of young and active citizens, as key actors for the achievement of SDGs in CEI and AII areas;
- Stimulating the elaboration of community-based ideas promoting the SDGs through participation in the Call.
An informative video on the Call is available HERE. It provides information on the principles of the United Nations Agenda 2030 and the 17 SDGs and their targets.
The video presents the winners of the first edition of the Call as well as examples of areas and global challenges the world needs to tackle, together with some inspiring ways to cope with them.
It is meant to inspire potential applicants and make them reflect on how they can make a difference; what they can do in their everyday life; which ideas they can think of for fostering the social, economic, and environmental sustainability, at community, local, regional level, perhaps in cooperation with local authorities and other stakeholders.
Applicants need to carefully observe the criteria and obligations set by this Call before submitting their proposals.
