Sustainable Participation Goals

Sustainable Participation Goals (SPGs) is a 24-months Erasmus+ project. It involves training, equipping and mentoring 250 young people with fewer opportunities or at risk of social exclusion from 5 different countries, Romania, Italy, Portugal, Sweden and France, ahead of the European elections in 2024. Throughout the two years, the youth will learn about the European Union, its values, its policies and the possibilities of contributing democratically to its existence.

More specifically, the participants will:

  • Reflect on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), on how politics contributes (or not) towards achieving them;
  • Engage in constructive dialogue with Members of the European Parliament (MEPs);
  • Raise awareness about the SDGs in their communities; and
  • Propose practical solutions to improve daily life and contribute to a more sustainable future.


  1. All young people are protagonists:
    To increase the skills and autonomy of young people with fewer opportunities, making them protagonists in proposing solutions on key topics for the future of communities and young people themselves (SDGs of the 2030 Agenda);
  2. Europe from young people to young people:
    To promote widespread knowledge of decision-making systems and democratic participation, linking the European to the local level, and enhancing digital skills to spread the commitment (also in view of the 2024 elections);
  3. Educate to participate in Europe:
    To strengthen youth workers and non-formal education systems in the proposal of paths and tools to bring together and make protagonists also young people with fewer opportunities in choices and decision-making processes.
