How it started
Did they live happily ever after (i.e. did they deliver the project)? The answer is yes, with over 30 young Europeans from 28 European countries sharing their personal stories connected to the SDGs, their passions, and the projects or initiatives they took part in. The one-video project soon grew into three short videos and a storybook aimed at high school children under the #WhatDoYouCareAbout hashtag.
But that’s not the end of it!
As the Commission traineeship that brought them together had come to an end, most of the trainees scattered around Europe, relocating for job opportunities or returning to their home countries, while only a handful of the group remained in Belgium. However, the initiative left a strong impact on the participants who shared a dream: to promote sustainable practices and European values through creativity, believing that sustainability is the key to making people’s lives better.
