dare to shape your future!
To dare something, that's what it's all about! At the convention, you will discuss with young people how you imagine your future – and what you have to dare to make this future happen.
How do you imagine your future? That is the central question here. Together with the organisations Jugend hackt, IMAGINARY - open mathematics, Glocal Films and the artists Beldan Sezen and Susanne Heincke you will work on your future projects in various digital workshops and will give your generation a voice. You will advance your visual storytelling skills or practice coding future spaces in VR. You experiment with AI and discuss opportunities risks of this new technology. And you can take an active part in the program by sharing your engagement in digital Ted Talks, panel discussions or social media stories.
You can find information about the individual workshops and the supporting program here:
Since the exchange is the focus, the language should not be a barrier, which is why main language will be English. The other young people in the regions are also learning German and there will be a group of young people from Germany. It´s a great opportunity for you to practice your German.
Students between the ages of 15 and 17 can apply for dareCon!. Each country selects students for their dareCon! team.
