ReGeneration 2030 has recently been established as a foundation with the mission to mobilise youth for sustainability in the Nordic and Baltic Sea Regions. Our vision is to make sustainable consumption and production the new norm. We realise this through fostering leadership among youth, uniting actors, demanding change by initiating and having conversations with relevant power holders, building excitement and engagement around sustainable lifestyle and facilitating action.


Our main event is the annual Summit that takes place during the ReGeneration Week, on the Åland islands. The Summit provides a platform for youth leadership and intergenerational dialogues with senior change makers. We run projects such as leadership programmes, campaigns and events. We also support national mobilisation and aim to build a network of national representatives.
