Atlantic Youth Creative Hubs in Brussels

On February 7 the Atlantic Youth Creative Hubs (AYCH) was presented in Brussels. The main goal of this EU project is to offer employment opportunities to young people in the creative and cultural sectors thanks to innovative tools.

In particular, the working tools or “AYCH Tools” which aim to involve Atlantic regions’ young people in the making of innovative and creative ideas were presented by Ecole de Design de Nantes Atlantique (EDNA) as well as the AYCH communication strategy by Vida Lactea.

The audience also got to know about “AYCH Ocean”. This branch of the project developed by Vida Lactea focuses on the collection of plastic waste found on the seaside so as to build future innovative and creative materials. In other words, these young people create sustainable “prototypes” to fight against environmental pollution.

To finish with, the capitalisation strategy which Atlantic Cities is building with Grand Angoulême and EDNA was explained. The ambition is to promote the dissemination and transferability of the project beyond the current partner regions so as to make its implementation possible in other regions or countries.

Atlantic Youth Creative Hubs (AYCH) is a project built for integrating best practice and knowledge, supporting young talents and their education, entrepreneurship and employability through the development of creative and technological skills.

It is co-financed by ERDF under INTERREG Atlantic Area and it is composed by 14 partners and 7 associate partners from all the Atlantic Area Region countries (UK, Ireland, France, Spain and Portugal).
