A new website and our Vision 2030!

Margaux Dos Santos, communication officer of Youth Express Network, presented our new website to the General Assembly. This website was remade during the lockdown. Freshening it up allowed us to make our presence on the internet closer to the essence of our activity: it is now more dynamic and young! Renewing it also allowed us to optimize its weight and make it easier to navigate through.

To finish the meeting, Andrea Pantarelli, Board Member of Y-E-N, presented the results of our Survey on the future of Youth Express Network. Conducted on our member organisations, this survey allowed us to map the wishes and expectations of our members on our future work.

Special Thanks!

We would like to send a special thanks to Lari Schinteie from Sustainable Babes, who moderated this General Assembly!

And last but not least, a warm thank you to Nino Tsulaia and Sirarpi Manyan who finished their mandate as Board Members of Youth Express Network! ❤ Thank you so much for your dedication and contribution to our network!
