The Network

The network consists of ten media and cultural organisations across Europe. Together we produce videos, podcasts and events to create a new Europe that represents a youth forgotten in the public debate.

The network aims to be closer to its audience by reporting on issues that matter to them and meeting them by organising events across Europe. We see ourselves as a bridge between Western and Eastern Europe, reaching out to the Mediterranean.

We have the same concerns as the young generation, we want a better world and believe that it can drive social change.

Our stories

Inspiring content, be it videos or podcasts, is our profession.

We transcend boundaries and bring stories to life. We inspire youth to take action for change and we make them feel connected to European issues, no matter where they come from or what their background is. We basically have the same concerns, we want a better world and we want to give a voice to the unheard.

We are the link between the media partners and allow them to collaborate, exchange and benefit from each other to create a new narrative that is closer to today’s Europe.

We received support by the EC. The editorial independence is guaranteed within the Grant Agreement.
