An expedition uncovering the impactful stories of dozens of young social entrepreneurs, researchers and community leaders from East and Southeast Europe.

Half of the world population is under 30 years of age. Youth represents 1.8 billion people in the world. 80% live in developing countries. Youth is fundamental on tackling poverty, hunger, violence and all sorts of inequalities and showing how their creativity, innovation and resilience can overcome any challenge faced is imperative. The stories and accomplishments of these extraordinary young humans have been widely neglected.

Framed under the Sustainable Development Goals, the Europe Rising expedition will feature dozens of short documentaries, hundreds of photographs, testimonies, interviews and articles showing through the eyes and stories of young East and Southeast Europeans how these challenges are being turned into opportunities and are bringing about change locally and regionally and serve as examples to the entire world.
