ASEZ is a group of university student volunteers who organize events and activities to address pressing needs in communities around the world. As future leaders, ASEZ unites students, communities and governments to create real and lasting change through the SAVE Movement. The work of ASEZ takes place in more than 175 different countries.
According to the Broken Windows Theory, visible signs of disorder, such as litter or graffiti, instigate criminal activity. Studies have also shown a correlation between neighborhood cleanliness and reduced crime. With this in mind, ASEZ university students help their campuses and communities to promote peace and happiness.
To raise awareness of local and global matters, ASEZ volunteers also partner with government officials and municipalities. Thousands of dignitaries and entities around the world have signed agreements and memorandums of understanding with ASEZ. They pledge to support the volunteers’ activities in their communities and their efforts to accomplish the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
ASEZ hosts forums as a platform for all members of the community, including residents, officials and students, to discuss critical issues and how they can work together to tackle them. Topics include crime reduction and the importance of youth engagement. Volunteers hope to inspire classmates and neighbors to participate in the movement to Save the Earth from A to Z—from the beginning to the end.
