    Focused on conducting surveys, organising conferences, producing documentaries and publishing research by young Europeans, ThinkYoung aims to make “Brussels” aware of what young people think. Its vision is to make Europe think young.


    In 2007, as students, we were working in Brussels for one of the biggest European student organisations.
