ReGeneration 2030 summit
New ways to meet in different times
ReGeneration 2030 usually has their summits on Åland Island in August. The purpose of the summit is to give support to young people from the Nordic and the Baltic Sea region who are engaged in UN Sustainability Goals. The summit this year will instead be online and in national hubs.
- COVID-19 has meant a lot of change for most of us. We can’t do the things we had planned, and we must rethink how we can come together, have meaningful discussions and still, maybe especially during these times, foster the mindset and excitement for change, says Stinne Friis Vognæs, communication officer for ReGeneration 2030.
This year's summit will therefore be a combination of online and local hubs. ReGeneration still wants to ensure that the summit has a regional touch and that the participants from the whole region* meet, which will be possible online.
- We want to make sure you get to meet like-minded people and start acting right away, which is why we have created the physical, local hubs where you can meet some others physically in your country/city, says Stinne Friis Vognæs.
The summit will give the participants a chance to meet like minded people, learn more about capacity building and participate in workshops regarding different SDGs. There will also be some inspiring cultural events. The main target participants for the digital Summit are young people, 15-29 years old, of the Nordic and Baltic Sea regions*.
ReGeneration wants to create an intergenerational dialogue and therefore also welcome actors of all ages from the regions. Stinne Friis Vognæs hopes many will join this year’s summit.
- This year will be a very different kind of Summit compared to what we had imagined. It will be an experiment and we are looking for the young people who are up for this experiment and excited to be part of something new and build momentum for a youth movement in our region. We hope to see you in one of our hubs or online!
