The programme funds projects that aim to develop and cultivate participants’ intercultural and global skills and thus to promote global citizenship. The funding line enables project partners to establish long-term working relationships in which they are equal partners, to build information disseminators’ expertise and to strengthen youth group exchange structures. A further goal is for the exchange projects to help implement and raise awareness of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set out in the UN’s Agenda 2030. As the projects are designed to foster global learning, participants gain a comprehensive picture of the partner countries involved and of the Global South and Global North.
