About the Project

Based on our KA2-strategic partnership project “Living Solidarity Alliance” we are creating learning opportunities for the youthworkers and design together the intellectual outcomes (research, Video and Podcast-Series, methodological guidebook).
On this solid ground we will explore how to implement the Solidarity focus in the local Youthwork.

Our Partners

The Living Solidarity Alliance partnership is initiated five partners from five different countries.

Get involved!

We are always on the look out for new partners to join, experts to connect and ideas to share! If you have something to contribute, ask us, feel free to get in touch with us.
