Young people are the trigger that activates civil society! 'Do Something' project promotes the civic participation and entrepreneurship amongst the Portuguese youth. It uses the power of Internet to connect young people and allows them to turn their ideas into positive actions for their communities.


Through a web platform, 'Do Something' promotes six programs for different causes (e.g.: Environment, Arts, Human Rights, Poverty, etc.). These programs are: action tips and volunteering opportunities; support to the creation of 'Do Something' Clubs; financing youngsters' social projects; campaigns for causes; training and networking boot camps; the 'Do Something' Awards that distinguish the young people that made a greater impact in their communities.
