Who we are

We are a community of young people from all ages, ethnicities and countries who join forces to create a better future

We meet every year in a different country in a humane, safe and trustful ecology in which we create, learn and explore new pathways into the future.
We believe the world can journey anew in what it means to be and become human, and we see this as being a vital development for humanity’s wellbeing. Within this we all can work together, share inspiration and learn to open up the ’wisdom of the heart‘.

Our story

We spark from a network of pre-existing communities who saw the need for more organic ways of living and working together as human beings

The Y-top has been funded by the European Union’s “Youth in Action & Erasmus+ programs” which has been an amazing partner and a ‘power engine’ for many of our movements and gatherings.Since 2012 we have successfully been awarded EU funding for various ongoing projects (“Skills for Living” England/ Wales; 2014, “Now The Doing” Netherlands; 2015 & “Human Rainforest” Ireland; 2016 and many important training gatherings in between in Denmark and Wals ). However we have also received funding and donations from various other sources such as art galleries (WallStyle – Dusseldorf/Germany) and local fund raising projects held  by the young friends in many countries  in a number of our volunteers native countries.
