YoUbuntu 2020 is the follow-up project of YoUbuntu 2018. It is a youth exchange between South African and German young adults that empowers them to live more sustainably and to consider jobs in the field of green entrepreneurship. The focus of YoUbuntu lies on the Sustainable Development Goals and skills development. In 2020, the emphasis will lie on SDG8 (decent jobs and economic growth). Throughout the project, the group keeps on reviving the Ubuntu-philosophy – I am because we are - and represents a true global friendship.
