TGE, short for The Global Experience has always been more than a job. I have been working with TGE (formerly Solar Net International) since its inception in 2005 and am now working as its CEO since 2009. Over the years we have grown from a small local school group to a globally recognized youth media network, connecting thousands of young people from across the globe through both online media and unique offline experiences.
Next to organizing international youth camps, internship programs and youth exchange projects we produce media that help people of different cultures to learn about another and connect. The Digital Participation Camp, an annual conference for young digital change makers and our language video channel Easy Languages with todays 80.000 subscribers have been among the most successful projects developing from our local and global youth media work.
