Project Summary

The “A Part of EU 2030” project aims to promote the engagement of young people in the process of active citizen participation through the Agenda 2030. One of the biggest challenges facing the EU nowadays is the need to boost youth participation in civic and democratic life, specially, youth migrants, minorities and third countries nationals as these groups do not actively participate in their community due to different socio-economic, linguistic, cultural or geographical barriers. These limitations affect different dimensions of participation: social and political participation; sport and culture; voluntarism; family and training and employment. Through the knowledge and accomplishment of the 17 SDGs, more engaged, empowered and aware societies will be achieved. 

In this context, A Part of EU 2030 project has the following objectives:

As a general objective, the project aims to promote the participation of youth migrants, minorities and third countries nationals through the 17 SDGs of the Agenda 2030.

As specific objectives, the project seeks to:

  • Develop activities that promote the participation of young migrants, minorities and third-country nationals to achieve the SDGs of the 2030 Agenda.
  • Develop knowledge, competences and skills of youth workers dealing with migrant youth, minorities and third-country nationals, to promote the active participation of this target group in the local, national and international level.
  • To develop activities that promote the participation of young migrants, minorities and third-country nationals through five areas of participation: Social and Political Participation, Sports and Culture, Voluntarism, Family and Training and Employment.
  • Raise awareness and provide knowledge on the relevance of the SDGs at the local, national and international level focused on the general population. 

Intellectual Output 1 (IO1)


The “A Part of EU 2030” Handbook will include 17 main chapters (one per SDG), collecting activities from the 5 different areas of participation to achieve each SDG: Social & Political Participation, Participation through Sport & Culture, Participation through the family, Participation through employment & training, and Participation through Voluntarism.

To create this Handbook, the consortium will carry out both previous research of the past editions, and new activities developed by migrant youth, minorities and third-country nationals, with youth worker’s support. The Handbook will include:

  • Brief introduction on the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) and its relevance for youth migrants, minorities, and third-country nationals; through participation at different levels.
  • A series of activities that will be related to the achievement of the SDGs of the 2030 Agenda, through exercises, resources and tools that promotes the active participation of the target group.
  • Each activity will specify the level to be applied (local, national, or international) and the area of participation it covers: Social & Political Participation; Sports & Culture; Voluntarism; or Training & Employment.

For the development of the Handbook, decision-making and active participation of the target groups will be key aspects. Each partner of the consortium will create a Local Youth Council that, with the support of two youth workers (10 youngsters and 2 youth workers in total), will develop the activities that will be included in the Handbook. To do so, first, the young target group will receive training on each of the Sustainable Development Goals defined in the 2030 Agenda, as well as specific methodologies to create activities that encourage participation through non-formal education models. As an example, the youth workers will collect and explain 3 activities covered in the past editions of the “A Part of EU” project, linked with some of the goals framed in the 2030 Agenda. This will serve as a guide for young people to reflect on and to create their own activities. Afterward, the young participants of the Local Youth Councils will present their activities at the national level in the “National Labs”, where they will evaluate and vote democratically on the activities that will be finally included in the Handbook, with the support of each partner organisation.

The activities selected will be shared in the Learning, Training, and Teaching Activity (LTTA) in Athens. During this LTTA, at least 4 young people from each participating country (and one youth worker) will travel to Athens to present the activities developed, which will be validated by the rest of the participants, to be finally included in the “A Part of EU 2030” Handbook.

The creation of the “A Part of EU 2030 Handbook” arises from the absence of a common tool to promote youth participation in Europe, in order to achieve the SDGs. In many cases, these SDGs developed in the framework of the 2030 Agenda are unknown by young people, or not applied on a daily basis. Thus, through the development of the handbook and the different training and piloting activities, we aim to develop an innovative tool created by and for young people, and also, to raise awareness of the importance of the SDGs as a fundamental pillar of more cohesive and strengthened societies.

Intellectual Output 2 (IO2)


The Awareness Campaign will be developed to disseminate the importance of the SDGs through youth active participation and to convey to the youth population the importance of the 2030 Agenda 2030 Goals at the global level. 

The young beneficiaries of the project, organized in the Local Youth Councils, will oversee leading the awareness campaign, through the production of short films and diffusion materials for social media made in each country. During these short films, the young people will transfer what they have learned during the training, in order to raise awareness among the general population, and especially among the young population, about the importance of participation to achieve the different SDG framed in the 2030 Agenda. In addition, different posters, leaflets, press releases, and publications on social networks will be produced to increase the impact of the awareness-raising campaign.

The materials of the campaign, as well as the Handbook will be included in an official project website, specifically created to share the results, and facilitate free access to the resources. The campaign is a key element for the involvement and participation of young people throughout the life of the project. Beneficiaries will take decisions on which contents they want to focus on, how to elaborate the video scripts, which is the best way to reach other young people using social media materials, etc. The development of the campaign will be progressive, throughout the life cycle of the project and in parallel with the development of Result 1.

In order to create innovative and eye-catching materials, able to synthesize ideas about and encourage youth participation, with the greatest possible impact, Social Networking Laboratory will take place. It will consist of specific sessions in which the members of the Youth Local Councils will work on the materials and methods to implement the campaign. Apart from the campaign in social networks, young migrants will also implement a face-to-face session with other young people, to disseminate information about the importance of SDGs and promote their involvement in the follow-up and dissemination of the campaign on social networks.
