How can we become change-makers in our communities, in Europe and in the world? Which tools help us to achieve that? How can young people and politicians collaborate in order to shape their community and Heimat? In each workshop, young people and adults come together to explore the best practices from Dresden and other European cities.
#1How to advise on local policies?
Leader: Sefton Young Advisors, Liverpool:
Young Advisors are young people, who show community leaders how to engage young people in community life, local decision-making and improving services. Through their work, Young Advisors bring unique expertise and knowledge about being young to influence strategic planning, decision-making and marketing across business, health, local authorities, justice and charity sectors.
#2 How to influence laws?
Leaders: Stine Marie Jacobsen (DE/DK), Bilal Alkatout (DE) - Law Shifters:
Law Shifters engages young citizens in law and democracy by giving them the chance to act as both judges and lawmakers. What would your verdict be to real court cases, and how would you rewrite the laws in your country so that they would be more fair?
The Law Shifters project makes young people discuss their political opinions, ethical views and sense of justice as they re-judge real court cases and write new law proposals that reflect the reality that they are part of today.
#3 How to participate in a digital way?
Leader: Michaela Gloger, Kinder- und Jugendbüro Dresden
What does participation mean to you? That’s the first question we will answer together. Afterwards, we will discover different opportunities and possibilities to participate in creating your surroundings and your hometown. By the way, you will have the chance to test different tools of digital participation.
#4 How to communicate respectfully?
Leader: Kathrin Ibisch, Educators for Future
How does respectful communication link to the unfolding of potentials, true participation and future-oriented projects of commonality? My workshop aims at opening up a space of exchange in which we explore these aspects, gain new insights and discover novel possibilities of action.
#5 How to be part of the European space?
Novi Sad European Youth Capital and European Capital of Culture 2021:
Novi Sad, a small, but compact city in the heart of the Vojvodina region. This vivid city with over 80,000 young people will surprise you with it’s transformative energy, multi-nationality and cultural diversity. In this workshop we discuss what it means to be European Youth Capital, how it links in with the European Capital of Culture and how a city can become both.
#6 How to reach an agreement?
Leader: Sylke Gottlebe, Steffi Karn und Uta Quietzsch, Filmfest Dresden
With a selection of five short films from the festival repertoire, we show the versatility with which international filmmakers deal with the themes of home, identity and self-determination. In an exemplary process of film viewing, we discuss the different perspectives of the films, evaluate them and select a favourite for the final presentation.
In a subsequent plenary session, the results and findings of the conference will be summarised and presented again in the form of an elevator pitch.
