ThinkYoung is the first think tank focusing on young people. It was founded in 2009 in Brussels and has expanded to Geneva, Hong Kong and Nairobi.

 

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 educational programmes. So far, ThinkYoung projects have reached over 800,000 young people.


Based on its research on young people, ThinkYoung creates schools and workshops to empower youth with the tools to 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.
