“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

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.
