Report This Organization

Generation 2.0 is an organization created by the second generation of migrants in Greece, who work together to promote equal participation in a diverse society, through the empowerment of communities.

Generation 2.0 is a nonprofit organization created by the second generation of migrants in Greece, who work together to promote equal participation in a diverse society, through the empowerment of migrant communities. To achieve these objectives, the team maintains an organization dedicated to the issues that young people are facing in Greece and Europe, especially the problems of youngsters of immigrant origin, who were born and/or raised in Greece, but still were not considered equal to Greek citizens, legally or socially. The organization has carried out campaigns to raise awareness towards the second generation and organized informational seminars throughout Greece, applying continuous pressure, which successfully led to the enactment of law 4332/2015, the right to Greek citizenship.

From then on, Generation 2.0 maintains an observatory for the implementation of migrant-related law and at the same time works along with migrant communities in order to provide them with the necessary tools that will enable them to claim an equal role in the Greek society. Given the challenging atmosphere in Europe against migration, the organization also targets the Greek society in the sense of reversing the negative connotations connected with migrants.
