Generation T wants to bring together and put in the spotlight a whole generation of young sustainable change makers, and that’s why we launch a second selection round of those change makers! You can subscribe here.
From 2017 onwards we will focus on the interconnection between Generation T to create mutual support and co-creation, but we will also make the connection between those youngsters and CEOs of organizations and enterprises to work together on a more sustainable future.
But before looking for new candidates we are happy to look back at what we have realized the past year.
Connection of young changemakers
Generation T Launch
The first Generation T was presented on the 10th of November 2015 in the presence of the Minister Marie Christine Marghem. Generation T got the chance to get to know each other during an interactive speeddate moment.
Generation T Café
These informal moments give Generation T the chance to meet on places related to Generation T members, such as EcoKot. Those events were sometimes spiced up with interesting guests such as the lecture of Michel Bauwens in the Federal Parliament.
Connect Generation T with leaders of today
Train to Paris
A special train was set up to transport policy makers, climate experts, representatives of the UN, EU institutions, enterprises and NGOs to the COP21 in Paris. 15 Generation T were invited on this train to share their ideas and visions with those policy makers.
Dialogue with CEOs
Different selections of Generation T members had different meetings with the management and/or CEO of Delhaize, KBC and DEME to co-design a sustainable future in their sectors.
Meet& Greet CEO’s of The Shift
Thomas Leysen, president of The Shift, invited Generation T and the CEOs of the members of The Shift for a speed dating lunch. This lunch was a special opportunity for Generation T to meet CEOs from different sectors, and to exchange ideas in an unique and informal atmosphere.

Generation T Weekend
