More recognition for international youth work

Action week #internationalheart

The action week #internationalheart is an initiative of associations and organisations of international youth work, coordinated by IJAB.

During the Action Week, we are working together to promote international youth exchange and thus to increase the visibility and recognition of youth exchanges. In particular, we would like to win support for international youth work from the members of the German Bundestag.

For this purpose, sponsors, (former) participants, activists and supporters of international exchange projects visit members of parliament in their constituencies throughout Germany to discuss wishes and demands for the future of international youth exchange.

In order to make the action week #internationalheart visible nationwide, all participants document their visit and everything that goes with it via Instagram, Twitter, Facebook or Youtube with the hashtag #internationalheart. This way the nationwide actions become visible on the Social Wall #internationalheart.

The action week will take place for the third time in 2020 - in order to continue the dialogue with politicians and to keep the topic present.

#internationalheart 2020

Due to the current situation, we are postponing the action week #internationalheart 2020 (originally planned from 22 to 28 June 2020) to a date after the parliamentary summer break. We will inform you here as soon as the exact date is fixed. Please be patient until then and keep your #internationalheart!
