EVS-Strengthening the youth movement in Save the Children
Date du début: 1 sept. 2015, Date de fin: 31 juil. 2016 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

Youth and children active in the Save the Children movement are at the key transition stage from being in a cooperative to being in a strong network. After we formed the first ever youth network of Save the Children in May 2014, we now want to strengthen the network and extend our reach-out to other children and youth active in the movement. One of the ways to do that is to take part at the meeting of presidents of Board of national Save the Children organisations, in October 2015 in Geneva. Parallel to this meeting, we want to meet all our partners from Save the Children youth groups from Denmark, Finland, Romania, Italy, the United Kingdom, Germany and more at a forum which will be reserved only for young children's rights activists. This is where we will have the space to exchange experience, plan joint activities and lobby towards presidents of Save the Children to make sure the youth voice is heard in actions of this big global charity. In the long run, the Forum will just be a starting phase for a strong network of children and youth working globally for making the world more fearless and stimulating for children by ensuring the full implementation of the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child. In order to bring about this Forum it would be of utmost importance to have a volunteer helping with the preparation and communicating with all the partners involved. Furthermore, in the Nordic region, youth and children active in Save the Children are already well connected, but we are starting to reach out to more children and youth and especially at islands in the region to make the cooperation reach out to the children and youth who are marginalized and who find difficulties in being included in international cooperations. For the purpose of organising meetings and joint activities of organisations in the Nordic cooperation, a volunteer could help us cooperate in the most efficient way and all along gain unique experience in working in an environment different than their home country.
