We act up – a lot.

Génération Maastricht aims to change the lives of young people living in Europe: we do this at the local level by offering personalised mentoring programmes or grassroots training for all to have the possibility to work with local authorities and the public.

We also act on a national level, by proposing public policy recommendations to regional and national governments – and also on an international level, by being an NGO participating in several missions carried out by the United Nations bodies in Geneva.

Our actions

Génération Maastricht acts as a European laboratory of engagement: we find good practices for youth and recommend them to governments and parliamentarians through several actions. Discover them by following the link below.

About Génération Maastricht

Missions and Projects

Our goal of promoting civic engagement among young people is based on three pillars: advocacy, ambition and training. Our framework to attain this goal is thus through the creation of a toolbox to support and create initiatives, and finally to foster empowerment through the creation of relevant projects for the world around us. Our Pro bono legal clinic, based in Brussels, offers pro bono advice on European immigration, taxation human rights and ECHR issues. The Feminist Diplomacy Working Group is our feminist backbone – defining our policy proposals at summits like the Generation Equality one; the Europe 2030 programme aims to give practical engagement material for young people, Citoyen 2030 then broadcasts the works of those who use them. Finally, the Global Policy Centres is our fully virtual international research centre, led by Lauren Power.

Let’s change civil service, together.

My objective is simple: to give the chances to all to transform their ideas into strong commitments.
