“The planet has some 125 Million 18 year olds. My dream is that all of them would do one year of planetary service (to begin with) – I see it as an orientation and confrontation year. Think 250 Million hands — one year. They could move mountains, literally.  It would be at the same time the sort of ritual which has been there forever: Leaving home, seeing the world, finding yourself.” — Rembert Biemond

What is it?

  • A starting international movement of people, projects and organisations working towards a regenerative, sustainable, peaceful and humane future. Uniting efforts, strengths, networks and resources to give voice, make more visible and expand the ripple effect of creating a sustainable and regenerative future.
  • We promote volunteering to young adults (18-35) and at the same time, create a network of projects and organisations from all around the world that are working towards a peaceful and regenerative future and would like to receive volunteers to help out with their cause. The volunteering contribution is exchanged for food and accommodation from the hosting projects.
  • We act as a support system for the participants throughout their experience by offering a mentoring framework to enrich their experience even more (e.g. having weekly online meeting with other participants to reflect and create a community between them; personal assistance when needed, and much more).

Our objectives

1. Reach as many young people from the age of 18 to 35 years old in the world.

2. Offer a meaningful and hands-on experience, in projects and organisations that are fully committed to work towards a solution for a challenge that the Earth and/or the Human Society is facing. While having intercultural exchanges in the places they volunteer.

3. Offer a support system to the participants throughout the year where they can deepen their experience by reflecting, sharing, learning new resources, etc. And where they can lean on if anything doesn’t go as planned.

4. Work to be as accessible as possible to anyone regardless of their financial reality.
