Youth for Exchange and Understanding (YEU) was founded in Strasbourg in 1986 by a group of 120 young people from 11 different countries. In 1989 they were recognized as a member association of the European Coordination Bureau (E.C.B.). Today they are a member of the European Youth Forum. There are young people from over 30 countries from across Europe and Africa involved in the organizational activities. As an international network, they are the representative body of their members in contacts with the institutions and partners in the youth field.
The concept of sustainable development has been recognized as a crosscut principle in previous decades. Significant efforts are being put by governments, organizations, researchers, scientists and scholars around the world in this direction, aiming to develop a society which ensures harmony between environment, society and economic growth.
The youth exchange will lead to various results, among others knowledge, skills and attitudes gained by the participants, which will help them to be more active towards sustainable development and adopt useful habits. In addition to that, the youth exchange will develop a video. The video will thoroughly provide vital information about the concept of sustainable development and tips about what young people can do for it. The idea is that this video is disseminated through the local/national/European networks of the partners with an aim to influence more young people. This youth exchange will take place from 5-15 September 2015 at three locations in Belgium.
