PlanBe, Plan it Be it

“PlanBe, Plan it Be it” is a Non-Governmental, Non-Profit Organization based in Nicosia, Cyprus,
managed by a team of youth workers, project managers and volunteers.
One of the main aims of “PlanBe” is to contribute to the positive societal changes by promoting effective communication between youngsters, intercultural and intergenerational dialogue, by facilitating understanding among people. The mission of our organization is to develop and support the use of non-formal education, to foster entrepreneurship, to boost creativity, to support environmental consciousness, to foster democracy and human rights and to develop solidarity and tolerance among youngsters. Our main focus is to promote the cultural heritage of Cyprus and bring youngsters closer to their tradition, to traditional jobs and the agriculture of our island, and to narrow down the generational gap between the older and the younger generations. Therefore, we mainly design and run workshops and projects related to our cultural heritage, tangible and intangible, and how young people can gain
new skills through our traditions and culture but also how youngsters can help in the preservation of these traditions and their transfer to younger generations.
“PlanBe” has been established to support young people from all over Cyprus within the framework of non-formal and informal education. Together with volunteers coming from all over Europe, we are creating a fruitful ground for young people to reach their goals, to gain new skills, to get to know their culture and cultural heritage and to promote mobility. We are working for and with the youngsters. We encourage their involvement in the civic space of Cyprus by facilitating innovative free time activities, by stimulating their creativity and by developing their different skills. We support youngsters to use and develop their capacities, and to actively participate in the vision of a united Europe in order to foster
European cooperation
Two important priorities for “PlanBe” is to give access to all people, including young people with fewer opportunities, and to fight against discrimination's.
PlanBe has a big network of partners in Cyprus and in Europe. Also, PlanBe is a full member of CyprusYouth Council since October 2015 and Eurodesk multiplier organisation since April 2018. Furthermore
PlanBe is a founding member of the International Association AIM (Amesci International Movement), a network of 17 European Youth NGO’s based in Brussels. Since October 2018 PlanBe is a member of YouthProAktiv , an international organization based in Brussels, that aims to create a generation of proactive individuals ready to invest their talents for the betterment of society by starting their own
business and creating jobs for themselves and the others. Since October 2018 PlanBe is an approved
candidate as a host ngo for "Erasmus for young entrepreneurs". Additionally, three Erasmus+ (KA1) projects that we have implemented were awarded with the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018(EYCH) label because they contributed to the achievement of one or more of the objectives of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018. Also, PlanBe is a partner organisation in two Erasmus+
