For over forty years the Tibetan Youth Association in Europe (TYAE) has offered a platform for young Tibetans where they can engage politically. The TYAE is the largest Tibetan youth organization in Europe. and seeks independent and youth-orientated answers to all questions related to Tibet.
About half of the members are divided into sections according to interests and region. The rest of the members are involved as individual members. Based in Zurich, the TYAE has been worldwide active for over 40 years.
The voluntary nature of the TYAE and understanding of the members of the necessity of their commitment makes up the essential basis of the association.
From protests, film festivals, concerts, talks at schools, panel discussions, action camps, children's camps, language classes to organising several Youth Parliaments, international solidarity rallies and campaigns - the TYAE works on many levels to strengthen the political awareness of Tibetan youth and promote solidarity among young Tibetans in exile.
