EuGen (European Generation) is a social promotion association founded in 2015 to support the process of integration in Europe.
It collaborates with European partners to develop international initiatives aimed at fostering the social and labor inclusion of young people with benefits and scalable impact for the entire community.
It coordinates a network of about 450 international partner organizations (EU4EU) and hosts a European Projects Hub.
To achieve its objectives, EuGen works with young professionals who have grown up and trained throughout Europe, who share the values subscribed by the EU, such as mobility, technological progress, sustainability and social inclusion.
“EUGEN – EUROPEAN GENERATION pursues the goal of supporting local communities in the process of European integration in support of the social, human and civil rights of citizens.
It promotes the rights of universal citizenship through actions aimed at achieving the right to full employment, social inclusion and free movement of persons.
The association operates specifically with non-occasional services and has for its purpose the development, promotion and implementation of social solidarity projects, including the implementation of socio-educational and cultural initiatives.
The spirit and the practice of the association originate in the respect of the principles of the Italian Constitution that have inspired the association itself and are based on full respect of the human, cultural and spiritual dimension of the person.
To pursue the social aims the association in particular proposes:
a) to train and support the community in accessing EU funding to stimulate local growth in an intelligent, sustainable and inclusive way and to overcome the economic and social imbalances between the Italian regions
b) to promote the transnational mobility of young people and the transition between training and the world of work, enhancing human and professional attitudes and skills
c) to feed the feeling of European citizenship based on the principles of solidarity, non-discrimination, equal opportunities, respect for the human person and social inclusion
d) to affirm the right to culture, education and lifelong learning and to support sporting practice and health promotion with a view to transnational collaboration
e) to support cross-border social and cultural tourism with particular reference to the elderly and youth activity.
The association avails itself of every instrument useful for the achievement of the social aims and in particular of the collaboration with the local authorities, also through the stipulation of special agreements, of participation in other associations, companies or organizations with similar or related purposes.
The association is open to anyone who shares solidarity principles. All those who recognize themselves in the Statute and intend to collaborate for the achievement of the social purpose can be part of the association in an unlimited number. They can ask to be admitted as members both natural persons and legal entities, both de facto associations, by submitting a written request.”
