Sustainable development is a recent idea established in France in the 1990s. Young people must be involved in decision making process related to sustainable development, as affirmed by the United Nations, in order to ensure a long-term success to all related policies.

In order to raise awareness on this type of commitment, the French NGO interviewed three international solidarity volunteers deployed to Algeria, Mauritania and Tunisia .
