TDM 2000 International

TDM 2000 International is a non-governmental, non-partisan, non-profit, independent organization committed to foster cooperation across Europe through the establishment of a vivid network of youth organizations.

Founded in 2008, it is committed to establish an effective network of cooperation between youth organizations to develop concerted strategies to approach common issues that affect youth, in order to become a main promoter of the empowerment of young people, youth associations and their communities as a whole.

Main goals

  • Challenge the paradigms of ethnocentric education systems and promote a more inclusive learning process that integrates contents non conformant to the dominant culture, thus fostering the development of a bigger respect for cultural diversity
  • Advocate for a world where peace, intercultural understanding, pluralism, non-discrimination, justice, equal opportunities and solidarity prevail
  • Create and provide tools and opportunities which may allow youngsters to enhance their personal and professional development, fostering consciousness in individual capabilities and developing competences increasingly required by the labour market, thus striving to achieve higher rates of youth employment
  • Encourage young people to research and thus realize the importance of their civil engagement and foster the acknowledgement of their prospective role as main actors of social change, therefore promoting a process of empowerment that shall lead to a more active participation of youth in the life and the decision-making processes of their communities
  • Promote strong synergies of cooperation between the public sector, the private sector and civil society through capacity-building, lobbying and advocacy processes in order to ensure socially responsible management and that young people take part in policy-making
  • Build a structure of support to youth organizations that stimulates international cooperation for development through sustained transfer of knowledge and exchange of best practices whilst facilitating reflection and debate at a transnational level
