Engaging young rural European citizens in a gender responsive approach to soil protection


Engaging young rural European citizens in a gender responsive approach to soil protection

The ‘Rural voices’ project, involving 12 organizations across 14 European countries, operates in rural communities by experimenting with a new learning-centered approach for non-formal education in rural areas. It will engage 21 million young European rural citizens, locally and globally, in sustainable development efforts within their communities. PuntoSud will handle the financial support management.



The project is implemented by 12 organizations (among those 3 youth umbrella organizations, 1 association of local authorities and 1 LA) in 14 in EU countries (HU, ES, IT, SI, DE, PL, PT, BG, NL, AT, GR and in addition FR,CZ,EE via sub-grant mechanism). Main objectives of the action go into two directions: to reach less addressed rural people with a new approach of development education and to promote soil protection and its interconnection to gender equality. The action thereby directly tackles key issues of SDGs and Green Deal: Sustainable land management is critical for addressing climate change and just transition. The action contributes to the development of young rural European citizens’ critical understanding of global interdependencies and to actively engage them in sustainable development on local and global level. The specific objectives reflect this as the action firstly develops an experimental learner centred approach on non formal development education for rural areas and disseminates it. The development and implementation of the action as a conjoint effort of the consortium and engaged rural youth leads to sensitizing 21 million young inhabitants of European rural areas about the interdependencies between the global challenges of land degradation and gender inequality. With manifold capacity building and concrete engagement options the project will engage 250.000 young rural inhabitants and enhance the competences of 9.000 educational multipliers in rural areas to take action for soil protection, gender equality and women empowerment. Thereby the project will have made a concrete contribution for the integration of Global citizenship education in non formal education in rural areas in the EU

Our activities:
PuntoSud will provide a capacity building program for small and medium size CSOs, identified in some Italian internal areas. The capacity building activity is preparatory to the subsequent re-granting activities, which will allow some CSOs to put into practice the projects that have been conceived during the capacity building process. PuntoSud will organize community of practices among interested CSOs (financed CSOs and other interested CSOs).
Moreover, PuntoSud will manage financial support in three European countries non covered by project partners: France, Czech Republic, Estonia.

Empowering youth, living EU values, tackling climate change


Empowering youth, living EU values, tackling climate change

1Planet4All operates in 12 European countries with the aim of raising awareness and promoting the engagement of young people in the development of concrete actions in the fight against climate change



1Planet4All is a 3-year project co-funded by the European Union (EuropeAid DEAR budget line), aimed at raising awareness and critical understanding of the European youths in 12 EU member states about climate change to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and inspire their active engagement in concrete actions for safe, inclusive and ‘climate smart’ communities. The key change expected will contribute to foster the active citizenship of European youths to address Agenda 2030, by enhancing the sense of inter-dependency, personal responsibility and solidarity between developed and developing countries for a sustainable future for all.

Three are the key outputs expected:

  • Enhanced understanding of at least 8.555.000 EU young people in 12 EU member states of the impact of climate change at global level, including the impact on migration and of the urgency for individual and collective action;
  • A new generation of 147.940 young leaders in 12 EU member states has been inspired, trained and up-skilled to become agents of change and encourage their peers and decision makers to take action in their daily lives to fight climate change and to strive for structural change;
  • At least 26.380 young people in the 12 EU member states have developed concrete ideas and taken action to tackle climate change and its related issues.

A joint campaign will be launched to cover all the 12 EU partner countries and will be complemented by campaigns at national level, to enhance the youths’ understanding on the themes of the project. Activities to encourage youths to take action will be implemented, together with initiatives to boost their engagement.



Resilient GAP, one of the CSO who benefits from a financial support to third parties in Italy, has produced a very interesting guide to make sustainable choices.
