„Boundless? The borders in our Europe“

The project aims to enable young people from France, Romania and Germany to define their visions of Europe and its borders. We have to move away from the sole geopolitical vision to focus on the vision of citizen identity that the young people have from Europe. As EU-citizens, they should have the opportunity to express what matters to them in Europe and what works and what does not within the frame of citizen participation.

Celebrating dialogue in a tiny house! A shepherd's hut tour as a creative answer to Brexit

Nowadays it is easy to focus attention on all things that separate us from each other. The idea of our tour is to shift attention to ways how to reconnect and come together as citizens of a Europe that is able to go beyond borders and separations. Brexit is for us the reason why we should head up to Scotland for the second part of our On Y Va shepherd's hut European tour. Scotland is not 'off our map', but more central than ever to the idea of an open Europe that defies withdrawal rhetoric.

Give & Take and the generous society

We build gift-shelves around Europa and beyond. Starting from four places we hope to involve more of them in our project. Let's face it: we, the people, are generous and gifts making and receiving is good for us! When we give we are strong and when we receive we are strengthened. We give rise to an international wandering group. Agreeing on the essentiality of being for each other we operate in different cities – at first Berlin, Etang, Enna, Poznan – and collectively create places for gifts.
