Directed By You(th)

Directed By You(th) project

The project “Directed By You(th)” aims to tackle civic engagement issues and low trust in democracy among European youth by using innovative participatory documentary making and graphic design methods. Youth workers will conduct workshops at the local level for 25 youth per country, helping them to create individual or small-group videos and campaigns on issues affecting their community. The resulting videos and campaigns will be uploaded to a virtual platform and promoted through local and international film festivals, where selected youth representatives will present their work. The project will empower youth to engage with civic society and develop skills in video making and graphic design.


Directed By You(th) addresses issues in civic engagement, apathy, disenfranchisement and low democratic trust among youth in Europe. The aim is to promote and achieve the aims of the European Youth Strategy: to engage, empower and connect youth.
