Introducing HOPE XXL

HOPE XXL wants to ensure that all people can achieve a life they can grade as ‘good’. Therefore we developed a new vision on the future with young people from all over the world. This vision, called the Liemers List, was presented to the United Nations in February 2015. 
This year we are starting to implement the Liemers List in our home region in The Netherlands. We will also continue to work with the United Nations, involve young people in the development and implementation of the Liemers List and promote wellbeing worldwide.
