Be The Change
53 young adults from 15 world countries gathered together in the project of FICE Austria "Be the change!" and created a Declaration with 10 standards for Care leaver.
The project took place in Vienna from 17th to 25th August 2016. Young adults, who have been living in alternative care and are now in the transition to an independent life, exchanged their experiences and created a Declaration with 10 standards for Care leaver.
The Declaration was presented at the 33rd FICE Congress and 2nd CYC World Conference on 22nd and 23rd August 2016 in several occasions: as a part of the congress opening, as independent 90 minutes session and as part of the closing of the second congress day. The Declaration was officially accepted by FICE and CYC representatives on the Congress.
The young adults, the professionals and group leaders, who supported them during their work, partner organisations and their networks continue disseminating the Declaration in their own countries.
The project was financed by the EU programme ERASMUS+, FICE International, organisation TIPITI, UNICEF Austria and many other sponsors.
