We believe bringing these future young leaders together will strengthen mutual understanding, respect and trust between both continents.

The TN2020 network focuses on three key areas: Sustainable Living; Creativity and Innovation and Building Resilience in Communities.

This week in Berlin, members from various transatlantic networks will discuss the big issues for the next decade and how they will affect the world we live in.
