Numerous collective and individual efforts, from official institutions to non-governmental organisations, from humanitarian aid organisations to those in solidarity in their own social circles, are coming to life with a common purpose to repair the consequences of the earthquake, which affected 11 provinces of Turkey and affected the lives of approximately 13-14 million people.
We will identify the basic needs, activities and obstacles faced by young people who want to contribute to the post-earthquake recovery process and work on the earthquake as active citizens, and we will discuss good and unsuccessful examples with all relevant actors and create a discussion area with questions. We will discover plans to take action together with solution suggestions.
