PlanBe, Plan it Be it, is a non-governmental, non-profit organization established in March 2014, aiming at the personal and professional development of young people. The organisation is based in Nicosia, Cyprus, and acts at a national and European level. PlanBe forms a platform of communication for the exchange of ideas and the productive cooperation of young people in a variety of subjects of interest. It explores youth’s development through means of formal and non-formal education, while at the same time promotes European and International opportunities for active citizenship and cultural understanding. In the fast-changing societies we live in and the challenges we face today, it is important to be prepared with an alternative, back up plan. PlanBe contributes to young people’s exploration for finding their own Plan B(e) and making it happen. So far, PlanBe has sent more than 600 Cypriots participants in a project abroad representing Cyprus and have implemented 21 projects, hosting more than 787 participants from abroad.
In 2018, our NGO has become a EuroDesk multiplier. Eurodesk unites a network of over 1000 youth experts in 35 countries under a mission to raise awareness among young people on learning mobility opportunities and to encourage them to become active citizens.
PlanBe has the ESC Quality label. European Solidarity Corps has had a major impact on the lives of many thousands of young people over the past 20 years. European Youth can have the opportunity to volunteer abroad and gain valuable experience.
Since 2019 our organisation is part of The Anna Lindh Foundation which is an international organization working from the Mediterranean to promote intercultural and civil society dialogue in the face of growing mistrust and polarisation.
