We have been implementing the Youth 4 Bauhaus project with an international consortium since 2022. We are creating solutions for deeper involvement of young people in the processes of participation in the creation of public space, increasing the capacities of participating organizations to work with young people, and last but not least, we are using beauty, inclusiveness, and sustainability as three important criteria for building cities of the future. As the main visualization digital tool, we use the Minecraft Education program, which, due to its versatility and widespread use among young people, was the best choice for visualizing proposed solutions.
The principles of beauty, inclusiveness and sustainability are the three pillars of the European Commission’s New European Bauhaus (NEB) initiative. The goal of the initiative, launched in 2020, is to bring the European Green Deal to our cities, which aims to reduce emissions by 55% (by 2030) and achieve climate neutrality (by 2050).
The project has a European dimension not only because it works with the values of the New European Bauhaus, but mainly because it is implemented by an international consortium led by Creative Industry Košice n.o.. Its members are Teatro Circo Braga from Portugal, GEYC from Romania and Collective Up from Belgium. In Košice, the High School of Construction and Geodesy is a project partner.
The project is funded by the Erasmus+ program.
