From April 11th to 21st, 2018, some twenty young people from France, Germany and Russia gathered at the Center Azur in Sanary-sur-Mer to take part in the project "Get involved with Make a Better Society".

This event is the third part of a 3-part of a bigger project held in 2016 in Erfurt in Germany, in 2017 in Russia and now, in 2018 in France.

During 10 days, the young people were able to learn how to set up a project in trinational teams, including workshops on the various stages of preparation of a project. They also had the opportunity to test the relevance of these projects at the Sanary market, by questioning the inhabitants.

The group also visited the region, Marseille, the association Cimade, the peninsula of Giens and the city of Sanary. They also participated in the cleaning of a beach and a park, in support of the association "Les Petits Nettoyeurs" (small cleaners in French).

The event ended with the final presentation of the projects, which each group hopes to put in place in their respective countries.
