The European Commission has recognised the gap and in January 2021 launched the new European Bauhaus initiative – an environmental, economic and cultural project, aiming to combine design, sustainability, accessibility, affordability and investment in order to help deliver the European Green Deal. For such a shift to be sustained in the long run, activists need to be deeply motivated, well informed, highly trained, and well connected. Being the leaders of tomorrow, as well as the main source of innovation, young minds have the greatest potential of making change happen.
With young generations being more accustomed to digital and artistic ways of expression (especially when the two are combined), this project aims at enabling youth participants to engage artistically in order to bring about social, economic and political change. Our project will therefore contribute to the movement by offering young people the tools to collectively achieve a just, local, green, economically viable transition through digital artistic tools for collaboration, community building, participation in democratic procedures, literacy and advocacy.
