Youth Empowerment is about opening up new spaces, where young people are taken seriously, where it is allowed to make mistakes and where they are able to take over responsibilities. It is also about learning from each other and creating profound relationships between adults and youngsters.

Opening up these kind of spaces usually open up the minds of the involved persons as well, and enables us to see the world around us with new eyes and filled with opportunities. This is the basis for entrepreneurial thinking and acting that helps youngsters and adults to exploit an opportunity, change the game (a bit), and gather resources needed.
