’Show me a Future II – Dare 2 Dream’’
and its first Youth Exchange that will take place from 12th – 18th August 2019 in Mühlhausen, Germany

Do you dare to dream? Yes, we do! That is why we are happy to welcome you to the first youth exchange “Show me a Future II: Dare 2 Dream differently!”.
This project was born out of many of the dominant public narratives in the early 21st century and the impact they have had on perceptions of the future of and in Europe. The intention is to make steps towards both imagining and even creating a brighter future.

During the project, 30 participants from Greece, Romania, Italy, Estonia and Germany, over the course of the three Youth Exchanges, will engage in alternative thinking regarding narratives about the present and the future, creating possible methods for promoting optimism for the future among European youth, and realise their own abilities to make valuable and impactful contributions to society.

The first Youth Exchange in Mühlhausen will focus on the role and impact of modern media and popular culture in European societies today. We will as well discuss questions of how the narratives influence our ideas of the future of Europe and whether changes in those narratives are needed.
We will look at the future through the lens of the present, as well as discuss the presentation of the future in today’s media and pop-culture from international and national viewpoints. The participants will have freedom to discuss the issues most important to them.
