ReGeneration 2030 Movement Summit
Young people in the Baltic Sea Region have expressed their willingness and commitment to take action and implement the 2030 Agenda, and to this purpose they have established the ReGeneration 2030 Movement. The first Summit will take place on the 18-20 August in Åland, where youth will develop a Manifesto declaring their engagement towards the achievement of the SDGs, in particular SDG12. This Manifesto will be delivered to the Baltic Sea Parliamentary Conference and will be complemented by and Action Plan defining the way to fulfill these commitments.
ReGeneration 2030 is willing to involve more young people and ensure that all countries in the Baltic Sea Region will take part in the Summit. ReGeneration 2030 aims to be a forum for intergenerational learning, where young people will discuss, but also learn from already existing experience. The goal is to define a roadmap where different generation collaborate for building a sustainable future for all.
As Chair of ReGeneration 2030 Steering Group, Simon Holmström says: "We have all set our sights on a grandiose idea to create a youth movement around Agenda 2030 in the Nordic and Baltic Sea area. Currently, the ReGeneration 2030 team with coordinator Hanna Salmén as a catalyst is planning the success story of the first Summit in its very details. In order to fulfill our vision of the first Summit we need participants!"
Mr Holmström invites young people in the age of 15-29 participate in the Summit especially from Norway, Greenland, Denmark, Germany, Poland, Estonia and Latvia, but all applications are very welcome. Also people older than 29 are invited to take part in the Summit.
