Over the past few days, we have been showing Cluj-Napoca to young people and experts from Thailand participating in the ReThink Urban Spaces project. 💡 The ReThink Urban Spaces project aims to promote the re-imagining of different mechanisms in cities in a sustainable way to empower youth.
As host and partner of the project, we presented to the Thai delegation several youth initiatives and youth organisations in Cluj between 4-5 July. 🙋♀️ 🙋♂️ The Advisory Council on Youth, the Youth Department of the City Hall and the Cluj Youth Federation shared their experiences on the relationship between the youth, the city and decision makers. We talked to youth experts from Babeș-Bolyai University and discussed the results of the LEAP research. Our guests got to know the FIX Cluj-Napoca Innovation Fund, the Cultural Centre of Cluj and we, the PONT Group, explained our activities and projects. 📖
The EU funded project between the European Union Delegation Thailand, the Goethe-Institut Thailand, Thai Civic Education Foundation and Child and Youth Media Foundation aims to contribute to making cities more inclusive by enabling all stakeholders to participate in issues affecting their current and future well-being.
