Profile

YOUCA, Youth for Change and Action - vroeger Zuiddag - is een organisatie voor en door jongeren, die hen stimuleert om engagement op te nemen en samen te werken aan een duurzame en rechtvaardige samenleving. Elk jaar in oktober organiseren we de YOUCA Action Day. Meer dan 15.000 Vlaamse en Brusselse scholieren tussen 15 en 20 jaar kruipen dan voor één dag in de kleren van beroepskrachten. Hun loon gaat naar projecten van geëngageerde jongeren wereldwijd.

Ambitions

The Shift helps members to make use of the global framework of the UN Sustainable Development Goals to map their societal ambitions.

4. Quality education

4.7 By 2030, ensure that all learners acquire the knowledge and skills needed to promote sustainable development, including, among others, through education for sustainable development and sustainable lifestyles, human rights, gender equality, promotion of a culture of peace and non-violence, global citizenship and appreciation of cultural diversity and of culture’s contribution to sustainable development. Zuiddag stimulates youth to strive for a sustainable society. Via campaigns like "Work for Change" they invite them to continuously learn more about and take action on topics like sustainable development and sustainable lifestyles, human rights, global citizenship and appreciation of cultural diversity.
