Mission & Vision

MISSION

For about 4 years, our organisation has been promoting, supporting and facilitating legal migration routes within EU member states for refugees with international protection status. This has been with the aim to better regulate intra-european migration. 

We are the first and only grassroots and youth-lead initiative in Europe that connects young migrants with organisations andcompanies across european borders. Within our moveurope! programme we use existing tools shaped by the current visa procedures…

VISION

Our moveurope! Vision pictures a Europe in which all young people have equal opportunities regardless of their nationality or legal status. While owners of european passports can move and choose their country of residence and employment freely, others cannot.

We want the benefits of living within the EU to be accessible to all young people and to make the values of Europe more tangible. In doing so, we are committed to reduce the disadvantages faced by refugees and migrants within the EU…
