Our project approach

People to People International has always believed in replacing cultural barriers with cultural understanding. We offer a variety of programs designed to increase chapters’ ability to carry out the mission of the organization in their communities. Contact your local chapter to learn about what they are doing.

SDGs and PTPI Europe – the long view

Sustainable Development Goals
In 2015, more than 190 world leaders committed to 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to help us all end extreme poverty, fight inequality & injustice, and fix climate change. We each have a role to play if we’re going to achieve these goals of a more prosperous, equitable, and sustainable world.

The 17 goals and the 169 targets contained within those goals are a fabulous roadmap to the future. These goals are being adopted by both the public and private sectors. They provide business and industry with a great platform to measure their sustainability, as well as their contribution to the planet and humanity.

For PTPI Europe, our ability to have a meaningful impact will happen when our chapters align their activities with SDGs. This means in reality that we have to take a long view during our thinking and planning. We plan to register in accordance with the UN SDG platform, the things we do, as a way of demonstrating our commitment to people, the plant and peace. This means that we must prove our commitment through concrete initiatives. The initiatives need to be SMART – Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Resource-based, with Time-based deliverables.

Our Shop

We are building this online shop to allow our talented and active chapters, a method to sell items or services. These are just one of the ways that our student chapters develop funds.  Almost all of our social projects are funded by private citizens.  We are grateful for their continued trust and for supporting our efforts to improve the state of the world. 

People to People International has always believed in replacing cultural barriers with cultural understanding. Why? Because this is one of the ways to convert rigidity of habit, into collaboration, offering a chance of peace through understanding. At PTPI, we create international connections for anyone who wants to experience the world and become a community problem solver.

Join us and make a difference – Peace through Understanding. #ptpi #globalcitizen
