Crossborder Youth Participation

German-Danish youth designs a common future by using the iMODELER

Within the INTERREG-project “German-Danish youth designs a common future” about 2,880 pupils from more than 29 German and Danish schools will meet to learn from each other the different lifestyles, values and culture (fostering intercultural understanding). By carrying out common project days at schools they will together develop common visions of a future “resource efficient, good life” within their INTERREG region. Their visions will be published to start a social political debate on common visions, values ​​and targets (fostering participation of the youth).

To reach this goal a new concept for project days and weeks at schools will be developed. They will take place at site as well as virtually. For the latter a platform for virtual collaboration will be developed to include as many schools as possible.

To raise public awareness and initiate a debate there will be an annual competition with intensive marketing for respective media coverage.

Within the project Consideo will provide young people (and schools) a free platform to

- develop their own models of the future (by using the iMODELER)

- publish their models,

- share their models,

- and meet virtually for intensive exchange, discussion and collaboration.

Through this the youth acts as pioneers, applying systems thinking and qualitative cause and effect modeling to consider the crucial factors and interconnections behind our future challenges.
