The project "Future Lab" aims at strengthening young people of the Danube region by working together with them to develop sustainable future perspectives. For this purpose, they will lay down their own wishes and talents and develop them further. In various workshops and excursions the young people from the Danube countries can connect, exchange and learn from each other.

The international youth meetings take place in Croatia, Ukraine and Germany. The project creates a platform to work together across countries, to mobilize and build sustainable connections. This exchange can be a significant contribution to international understanding. The young people can overcome prejudices and their own limits, build new bridges and find common areas of interest.

Develop an entrepreneurial or social project

"Future Lab" gives the participants space to be coached in social, sustainable and entrepreneurial aspects. They develop their own idea or project, e.g. for a startup or a communal social project to shape the future positively.
