And would you like to meet young people from all over Europe who want to shape our society in solidarity? Join our creative camp in July 2023!

About the event

Start off your summer in a creative way, by coming to our Creative Summer Camp. Together with other young people from different SAME member organizations and further youngsters from all around Europe you will spend one week in a seminar house which we will have just for ourselves on the outskirts of Lübeck. Through creative expression and crafts, you will develop your own art projects, showing what solidarity, youth participation and activism mean to you, focusing on what matters most. With a variety of art techniques to choose from, we are sure you will find a way to express yourself, explore different art techniques to spread your message and develop art projects you can take home. Furthermore, there will be an exciting side-program and plenty of time to hang out and enjoy the sun!
