Our work in society helps citizens and institutions contribute to a more inclusive, open and prosperous world and connects local issues to global themes, ranging from social action to diversity and youth issues.

We run programmes in partnership with local and international organisations who provide expertise in areas such as youth and social entrepreneurship, equal opportunity and diversity, migration, social inclusion and engagement, and active citizenship. See below some of the the activities that we develop in Brazil.


Active Citizens is a social leadership training programme that promotes intercultural dialogue and community-led social development.
