Sandro Dorian Mochan
Member of the advisory board
"Young people's participation is not a matter of course and unfortunately still depends far too often on their background. That's why we as young people need to give each other a helping hand in implementing ideas for the future and in our social engagement. IJP helps bring young people together and is committed to participation, which is why I am very happy to support them."
