ThinkYoung AISBL

ThinkYoung is the first think tank that focuses on young people.It was foun­ded in 2007 and has expan­ded to have offices in Brus­sels, Geneva, Mad­rid and Hong Kong.

It is a not-for-profit organ­isa­tion, with the aim of mak­ing the world a bet­ter place for young people, by involving them in decision mak­ing pro­cesses and by provid­ing decision makers with high qual­ity research on key issues affect­ing young people.

ThinkYoung con­ducts stud­ies and sur­veys, makes doc­u­ment­ary movies, writes policy pro­pos­als and devel­ops edu­ca­tion pro­grammes: up to date, ThinkYoung pro­jects have reached over 600’000 young people.

Based on its research on young people`s neces­sit­ies, ThinkYoung cre­ates train­ings and work­shops to empower youth with the tools to have a pos­it­ive impact and make a change.

Through the entre­pren­eur­ship schools set up in Europe and Asia, every year 300 young people from all con­tin­ents are given the oppor­tun­ity to cooper­ate, the chance to learn first hand exper­i­ence from suc­cess­ful entre­pren­eurs, and the skills to cre­ate their own com­pany.

At ThinkYoung Audi­ovisual Labor­at­ory, young research­ers are trained in film­mak­ing and mul­ti­me­dia pro­jects. So far, our team has pro­duced about 100 doc­u­ment­ar­ies on youth in more than 30 dif­fer­ent European and Asian coun­tries.
