14. Why is the project taking place?The Action aims to mobilise youth as catalysts for transformational change, localise SDGs at sub-national level and produce an innovative replicable educational model for Global Citizenship Education (GCE). The action is related to formal education in the selected countries, addressing complexities of the current global agenda and encouraging critical thinking on the 21st century’s global issues.
15. Overall objective of the projectTo increase active citizenship space for youth and for their informed and committed civic engagement in debates related to SDGs to promote a transformative culture of co-responsibility at a global level.
16. Specific objective(s) of the projectOP 1 -Replicable innovative tools and approaches on development topics in formal education are available (online) and implemented in school curricula OP 2 - Students and pupils have increased their awareness on SDGs 11, 13, 16 and on global interdependences between the EU and developing countries as well as their capacity to play a role and accomplish their responsibilities towards a transformational society OP 3 - Enhanced capacity and engagement of LAs in development education and awareness raising on their own sub national levels
17. What will have changed as a result of the project? (Summarise the intended outcome)Thanks to the bottom-up, multi-stakeholder and localized approach, the Action will enhance global partnerships between LLAAs and CSOs and will promote a common educational framework within the formal public school system that can support and promote awareness of the Sustainable Development Goals, in particular SDG 11, 13 and 16. The desired change in behaviour of the target group is an increased active citizenship space for youth and for their informed and committed engagement in debates related to the SDGs to promote a transformative culture of co-responsibility at a global level .

23. Main achievement of the project to-dateIn almost all countries, the project has led to a significant increase in active citizenship space for students and for their engagement. This has happened thanks to the work carried out by teachers with in-class activities and the action planning workshops. The workshops were a very good opportunity for students to have their voice heard by Local Authorities and this was very important for them. Although it might be premature, we can already affirm that the organisation of peer education activities and local awareness raising activities are the key factors in achieving project outcomes.
