Teams up! Youth Exchange for Sustainable Development provides funding for international, extracurricular youth exchanges and accompanying/pilot projects linked to them. It enables youth groups from African countries and Germany to work together on a joint project, in which they address one of the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The projects, which run for a maximum of two years, include a visit from Germany to the partner country and vice versa as well as online collaboration before and after the visits. The exchanges are funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
