The “Zukunftsstadt” is a fictious city invented by and for children and young people. In this fictious city, young people are able to make their own decisions and are actively involved in the democratic process. Through their contribution, they influence the development of the project. In this city, for example, children have the chance to study at university, start their own business or local political career. They can assume any role which exists in a real city. There will be political elections. They can present themselves as candidates of vote.
Needs addressed :
Give young people understanding about participation, political and economical understanding and awareness.
This is one of the few projects which really concerns democracy. In our city, everything is determined by young people. Adults only make sure the basic conditions are provided. Moreover, we set a high value on integration.
