Who are we?
Tegusad Eesti Noored (‘Active Estonian Youth’) is an organisation active all over Estonia founded and managed by young people. Our primary goal is providing civic education and opportunities of self-initiative to Estonian youth, on regional, national and European levels. We are the official representative organisation in Estonia of the European Youth Parliament.
The main activity of TEN is organising events where young people can have a voice and a platform to discuss problems impacting European society. These events include European Youth Parliament events (National Forums, Regional Sessions), panel discussions on various relevant topics in society, trainings focused on vital skills for young people and youth initiatives aimed at improving the communites around us.

“Joining TEN was the best decision of my life.”
TEN was founded in 2001 as a home for the European Youth Parliament in Estonia. Since then, we’ve hosted hundreds of life-changing events for over 10 000 young people.
Since 2001, we’ve hosted hundreds of events, where young people have been provided a platform to voice their opinions on important and relevant pan-European topics, as well as contributing to the community around them. TEN currently boasts over 500 members from all over Estonia and Europe. Thanks to them, we’ve managed to organise over 50 international European Youth Parliament events – 20 National Forums, over 30 Regional Sessions and two large-scale International Sessions. Furthermore, we’ve hosted countless panel discussions and public fora, where young people have been able to discuss important topics together with the experts of various fields. Finally, we have also organised youth initiatives such as Linn Lilleliseks, aimed at improving the community around us.
Our main goal has been, is and always will be giving a platform and opportunities to young people to let their voices be heard and make a difference on a local, national and European level. We believe in the capability of young people to make an impact in the society around them.
