Who, when, where?

And you would like to meet young people from different backgrounds and create together?

Then you should join the Future-Lab from June 30th to July 6th 2023 in Berlin.

You will camp for 7 days with other young people and create your own projects in workshops on one of the following topics:

  1. environmental responsibility and climate protection – sustainable and inclusive forms of living?
  2. war in Europe - the values of democracy and peace ?
  3. Change of society - alternatives of living together

You either develop a model project on one of the topics in groups of max. 10 people – be creative: there are no limits to your way of expression (e.g. a flash mob for peace / a construction plan for beehives in cities / The World-WG: A housing experiment / ... ). The FGYO will support you to realize your own project!

Alternatively, you will deal artistically with one of the three topics (e.g. performance art, theatre, poetry slam, photography, videography, graffiti, ...) - the workshops will be led by young artists from Germany, France or Ukraine.

There will also be exchanges with inspiring, diverse young people and political decision-makers.
