Crossing Borders is a non-profit, civil society organization. Crossing Borders educates and empowers young people to become active global citizens.
Across cultures and professions, we provide platforms for young people to cross-fertilise ideas and form global associations, networks, and communities worldwide. In a learning environment where all participants are encouraged to grow and learn from one another, we enable youth to share their best ideas, best products, and best practices.
In 1999, Crossing Borders started out as a project to support dialogue in the Middle East and in 2004 it was registered as an NGO. The same year, Crossing Borders became an official partner with UNESCO. In 2013, Dr. Mariano A. Davies became Chairman of the Advisory Board and in 2016 the Danish Photographer and author of the American Picture Jacob Holdt joined the Advisory board too. In 2017 Crossing Borders moved to the center of Copenhagen. In the same year He. Ambassador Zindzi N. Mandela became the Patron of Crossing Borders. In 2019, the Danish-Kurdish Author Sara Omar became Life Ambassador of Crossing Borders.
