TRANSFORMERS! is a two-week long exchange project in which 24 young people from 6 different cities are brought together in one of the network cities. They come from Amsterdam, Paris, Rabat, Istanbul, Cairo and Berlin. The participants are aged between 18 and 23 years old and live in neighborhoods that can be described as deprived. In their daily lives they have to deal with experiences of discrimination and exclusion. Inspired by recent cases of grass-root activism, they will experiment with new forms of political participation and civic engagement to fight problems in their neighborhood. They will be trained in skills of creative activism and digital communication by young experts.
