About ReGeneration 2030
This movement is formed, led and organised by teenagers and young adults of the Nordic and Baltic Sea regions and it provides tools and helps organisations find focal points for co-operation.
ReGeneration 2030 is a non-profit initiative developed by a number of core partners in the Nordic and Baltic Sea regions countries and autonomous regions*. The purpose of ReGeneration 2030 is to create a movement for change in the objective of achieving the sustainable development goals (SDGs) of the United Nations Agenda 2030.
The operative work of ReGeneration 2030 is managed by a coordinator that is overseen by a Steering Committee with the support of an Advisory Committee. The Steering Committee is the board of ReGeneration 2030 and consists of members who are maximum 29 years old from the different countries of the Nordic and Baltic Sea regions.
An annual Summit is organised each year, in which participants from all organising countries and regions are invited.
Our vision is to build a movement where teenagers and young adults innovate and use existing solutions to reach the UN SDGs that can be implemented by individuals, the civil society, businesses and the national legislations in building a sustainable future. The movement is not only an arena for us teenagers and young adults, but also a place to work with adult established leaders from civil society, enterprises, politics, academia and the public sector. Through the exchange of experience and intergenerational learning, we build skills in order for today's teenagers and young adults to become brave leaders for sustainable development today and in the future.
* The Nordic and Baltic Sea regions include the following 14 countries and autonomous regions: Denmark, Estonia, the Faroe Islands, Finland, Germany, Greenland, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Russia, Sweden. Belarus, Ukraine and the Åland Islands.
ABOUT AGENDA 2030 AND THE SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS (SDGs)
On September 25th 2015, countries adopted a set of goals to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all as part of a new sustainable development agenda. Each goal has specific targets to be achieved.
For the goals to be reached, everyone needs to do their part: governments, the private sector, civil society and people like you.
