Venue: 25-28 October 2017 in Nantes, France

Description

Together with local associations, Nantes Metropole and the City of Nantes are organizing the 9th edition of Nantes Creative Generations Forum on 25-28 October 2017. Everywhere in Europe, from Amsterdam to Séville, from Warsaw to Nantes, young citizens create, engage and innovate in order to strengthen life quality in their community. Fight against discrimination, reinforcement of relations between citizens, solidarity, protection of the environment, artistic collaboration – every initiative is unique but all of them pursue a common objective: to strengthen the notion of “living together”.

In order to allow these young people to meet, to learn and perhaps to experiment with new forms of projects with a European dimension, the Nantes Creative Generations Forum brings together every year participants from Nantes and Europe to present a concrete initiative. The objective is to encourage and stimulate European exchanges so that they can go further together. 

Each year, 30 projects are presented: 10 from Nantes and 20 from all of Europe. Projects must contribute to strengthen the notion of “living together”, involve a “citizenship” approach in tits general sense and develop an original approach. They can be linked to a large range of thematics: environment, health, education, culture, sport, intercultural dialogue, fight again discriminations, media, etc. Projects must be concrete initiatives (or at least in an advanced stage of reflection if not yet realized).
