Participation is open to all young people as well as young initiatives having something to say and wanting to speak out their demands. With the festival, we create a room for dialogue – either right in the centre of the city or at the state parliament – and set a framework. Here, you can:

Define themes

The discussions are at the heart of the matter and offer space for you to discuss with initiatives, politicians and experts about the future of our city - ever since 2001. At the HangOut, it is easy to have a chat over a snack.

Form gangs

Berlin is big, and the landscape of young initiatives and dedicated visionaries is dynamic. We would like to invite you to get to know new faces and ideas and to find fellow activists for you political demands – because you achieve more together.

Get active

Instead of just passing out dry information, selected initiatives invite you at over 40 campaign stands to get active right away, e.g. at the Europe Twister, in an upcycling workshop or by showing you how to make stencils. In addition, there is enough room for your own ideas such as the #whitedovechallenge by Georg-Büchner-Gymnasium.

Simply shine

Shine bright like a diamond: Here Berlin showcases what it can do. At #jufo, young artists, among them slam poets, dancers, musicians and perfomers, are given a stage and an audience from all over the city. They are being supported by newcomers and experienced stars such as Jilet Ayşe at #jufo16.
