Team Stories

Read about the experiences directly from our volunteers!


Buket Altınçelep, SDG Coordinator.

Ankara, Turkey. Turkey Network.

“If I had to describe my role in one word, it would be “change-maker ’’ who desires a change and, by gathering people, knowledge, and resources, makes that change happen.

I really believe that we need to consider the presence of the young population in today’s world, because it is necessary to provide young people with the education and support in the society in order to eliminate the visible as well as invisible obstacles that arise consciously or unconsciously - and in order to mobilize the youth, education and awareness is key.

We wanted to create a ‘youth-quake at TOBB University’. “


Dario Piselli, Project Lead.

Geneva, Switzerland (remote). Youth Solutions Team.

“I realized that despite my impression of this space being only for high-level and political discussions, that the core of entrepreneurship and innovation is to disrupt the status quo. We could help unlock the potential of millions of young entrepreneurs in the sustainable development space. Which is why we promote fundamental change in how our leaders perceive young people’s role in society. Young people don’t want to wait, they want to make change now.”
