HOPE XXL is a youth initiative that wants to ensure that all world citizens can achieve a life that they would grade as ‘good’. Therefore we are developing a new vision on the future, shared by young people worldwide. Thousands of young people have worked together to draft the Liemers List: a manifesto stating our ideas on issues ranging from sustainabilty and conflict to international cooperation and human rights.
We aim to present the global Liemers List as the global youth vision on the future to the United Nations General Assembly. The United Nations will be asked to take the lead in implementing this vision.
Now is the time to join the global movement. This year we will be developing the European vision on the future, followed by the global vision in the coming years. Be sure to provide your input on what you want for your world. Share your ideas and take part in HOPE XXL!
The story so far
Start of HOPE XXL in the Liemers region in The Netherlands. Dutch youth leaders drafted a document with one hundred statements for a better world. They named it the Liemers List, after the Dutch region where they developed it. It is a vision of the younger generation on the future of our society.
The first Liemers List is developed and publicly presented as young people's vision on the future.
We start our national program, visiting schools and festivals all over The Netherlands to discuss the Liemers List with young people. You can learn more about our national program here
The national Liemers List is adopted on the basis of feedback from young people all over the country. This is done during the national HOPE XXL conference
The European Liemers List is established during the European Conference
