The World We're Building

To build a sustainable future, we have to change this system before 2030. We strive for system change toward an economy focused on human needs, principles of care and equality, planetary boundaries, as well as global environmental and climate justice instead of profit. We no longer want to accept the exploitation of people and the planet along with rising inequalities. 


We want to question structures of power and privilege to address the root causes of the climate crisis and stop trying to fix its symptoms.


We want to reach climate and social justice through political and economic change in the Nordic and Baltic Sea region.

Our history

2017 - Nordic Council of Ministers launch a project ReGeneration
2018 - the first Summit is held
2020 - ReGeneration 2030 becomes an independent fully youth-led organisation
2021 - first ReGeneration week is held, and the Declaration is adopted
2022 - the Position Paper is adopted
2024 - the new long-term strategy is put into action
Our mission

We, the youth, believe that it is our mission to build a sustainable future. From bringing down apartheid in South Africa to winning voting rights for women in the UK, it's been young people at the front of movements for changing the world over.

We can’t wait for the leaders of the current system to dismantle it under their own feet: it’s time to take matters into our own hands.

That’s why our mission is to build youth power across the Nordic and Baltic Sea region to push for a just sustainable transformation by 2030.

ReGeneration Week 2024 working group

working group

This group focuses on advocacy communication, from writing position blogposts to making posts for social media on politics, climate issues, news from grassroots movements and many more.

Catalysts for Change working group

Last autumn this group designed a learning course for new motivated activists. In spring, we’ll be focusing on recruiting the participants and lecturers for the programme.



We have a range of partners involved in our projects and activities. Some organisations, want to take the cooperation to a new level and become core partners. Those are partners who want to cooperate with us on a long-term basis for a sustainable future.

We invite all organisations, networks or projects working with youth engagement and Agenda 2030 in the Nordic and Baltic Sea regions to become core partners to ReGeneration 2030. We are so much more powerful together! All our core partners get:

  • access to the partner network, where we share information, discuss activities and develop projects together,

  • invitations to represent the organisation at relevant events and festivals,

  • participant places on the ReGeneration Week,

  • opportunity to use our communication channels for international events, activities and advocacy.

If you’re interested in becoming a core partner, reach out to us at 

The core partnership is free of charge.
