In the light of the European Year of Youth 2022, the Northern Dimension Partnership on Culture (NDPC) and the EU National Institutes for Culture (EUNIC) has launched a call for museums and exhibition halls to engage in their new program Northern Dimension Youth and Museums for Sustainability.

The programme encourages museums and exhibition halls to open up for new collaborations with young adults The aim is to co-create new educational models to introduce youth to sustainability and the Sustainable Development Goals within the museum framework.

The project provides a space for learning and co-creation through workshops and the young adults will be invited to hack and ideate on challenges submitted by the participating museums. The project will support three winning ideas (up to 10 000 EUR) to be implemented within the respective museums or exhibition halls in the Northern Dimension area. 

The call is open to museums working in one or more of the Northern Dimension partner countries: Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Russia, and Sweden.
