Where We Work: Belgium

Through Future Smile, the Belgian adaptation of our global Make a Connection initiative in partnership with Nokia, we supported youth volunteer groups here focused on sustainable development. 

Implemented by a local partner, Future Smile oversaw a competitive process among youth groups who could demonstrate the environmental, social, and economic benefits of their projects. The winning groups received small grants and participated in training workshops, which touched on topics such as responsible consumption, budgeting, and civic engagement. Thanks to what they learned, youth leaders helped reduce use of plastic cups, organized nature walks, taught children to be environmentally conscious, and more.
