Sønderborg and the world is waiting for YOU

”We are the first generation that can end poverty, the last that can end climate change” . Those were the words of former UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon. The world is experiencing some of the most difficult challenges; climate change, inequality, hunger etc. We need to overcome those challenge, and even though it isn’t something you can do yourself; you can still make a change.

The youth is the future, and the future is something we shape today, and we believe that it is a necessity to empower all young people to bring their ideas, hopes and dreams to the table, and actively be a part of a change towards a more sustainable and better world.

Join us on the 5th – 8th of August and we will do our best to make sure that you feel empowered to be a local sustainable change maker!


That is what the Youth Summit 2019 is about! To empower young people to be the best version of themselves and to enhance their competencies, so that they can be change makers in their local communities. To give them tips and tools to realize their ideas, their wishes. To give them confidence in themselves and give them a sense of being part of a bigger community, working on a more sustainable world regarding climate change, gender equality, good health and wellbeing, quality education etc. in relation to all 17 of the UN Sustainable Development Goals!

Through a 3,5 days program the young participant will evolve within the community of the Youth Summit and gain competencies, tips and tools to go out in their local community and start their travel to the realization of an idea of their own!
