What does your future in Chemnitz look like? What should a city offer to keep young people here? What is attractive? And what do young people actually want? If Chemnitz would be awarded the title of European Capital of Culture 2025, the “youth of today” will hopefully still be here. But for this to happen, the application must also appeal to the next generation – and you can only check whether that is the case by talking to the young people.

So we sat down in the Spinnerei e.V. (cultural center in Chemnitz) with students & young actors of the civil society for a weekend – and asked them for their opinion. What did we have taken with us? A lot of input, new experiences and a discussion forum, that we want to repeat. Because no matter if we will win the title or not: we need you!
