Title: Windhaag Future Forum for youth
Windhaag Future Forum is a platform for young people that aims to make them aware of social and environmental problems. In 2009 the project was conducted under the title “Economy, resources, development” with 35 workshops for 668 participants. In small workgroups with the support of experts, the resulting ideas and demands of the young people were summarized in the “Windhaag Theses”, which were then discussed with decision-makers from government. There was also a comprehensive poll regarding this topic, conducted among the young people, government and business. Due to its success, the Windhaag Future Forum will be repeated in a one- or two-year cycle.
