You have an idea. You are searching for people with similar ideas. But, what’s next? What will be the step that takes you beyond visions and ideas, that will be embedded in reality, confronting or collaborating with existing structures? Together with Dutch and European youth movements or organisations, we will explore strategies and concrete elements that can lead to a process of self-organisation for the young city makers. We work in small workshops on a ‘toolbox’, facing topics as funding, how to upscale without losing the innovating power, and how to be engaged with the community around the organisation.
