The YouConf 2015

The YouConf 2015 is an international Youth Conference, which dares a glance into the future on the occasion of the 300th City Birthday of Karlsruhe.
The ‚Stadtjugendausschuss e.V. Karlsruhe’ (stja) has invited 10 persons (youngsters and companions) from the twin towns Nancy, Nottingham, Halle, Krasnodar and Timisoara to this youth encounter.


Karlsruhe 2.0 – Relaunch of a City

300 years ago Karlsruhe was developed on the drawing board adapted to the visions of the architects and the needs of the people who were going to live in. Today we ask ourselves: How does our optimal city Karlsruhe look like in 2051? What has to be maintained, what has to be changed? How do we travel, learn and work? What kind of clothes do we wear? Where are still places of encounter?
Youngsters from Karlsruhe and the twin towns Nancy, Krasnodar, Nottingham and Timisoara are presenting and discussing their ideas and their wishes of modification as a video clip, as a rough drawing or a text contribution via the Ypart – ground.
The workshop and supporting program of the mutual YouConf2015 week in Karlsruhe is developed out of their impulses.
Their results are presented in different places and events, among other things in Karlsruhe at the KA300 – pavilion, at the science festival EFFECTS, at the local “Karlsruher Jugendkonferenz” and in the twin towns of the partner groups.

Feel free – It’s yours

We are thinking the future! We are designing the future! We are the future!
Be keen on our results – and after that: listen to what we have to say!
