Who we are?

We aims to support social, economic and ecological sustainability

We are Gain&Sustain:Europe

The association "gain&sustain:europe" was founded in 2009 in Graz, Austria. The organisation aims to support social, economic and ecological sustainability.

We develop our services with heart and work with the mind. We are experienced partners in funding consulting, project development and implementation as well as mediation and youth work. Our services are open to all people and offered in a networked context. In doing so, we value methodology and interdisciplinary thinking and acting. The active participation of different stakeholder groups and perspectives enables a multidisciplinary approach and sustainable and effective strategies for all involved.

In the centre of our activity stands the desegregation of politics, society and economy. We work with people in a global context and step into open dialogue and generate valuable common strategies for the present and the future. As our major task we see the interlinking and consultation of youngsters in connection with international, intercultural events and EU projects to promote a raise of awareness of tolerance, EU citizenship and cultural diversity with the generation of tomorrow. The main objective of the association is the interlinking of single organisations and individuals, above all youngsters, around subjects like sustainability and social entrepreneurship in order to give space to innovation & creativity and to allow a cultural exchange.
