As part of Chemnitz 2025, Team Generation is tasked with involving different generations (children, young people, young adults and older people) and developing a program that takes up and combines their perspectives.
In order to develop the program sustainably, Team Generation works closely with the existing structure of project sponsors, institutions and city and state administrations.
In addition to the “Celebrate generations!” call for proposals, Team Generation held its own conference and participation formats in 2023. The aim was to bring local generational issues into the European dialog, to participate in the programme process and to interest local and European partners in joint project work in Chemnitz. Further editions of the conference are planned.
CREATE.U - Young culture made in Chemnitz
From September 09, 2023
Your own festival, a photo project or a fashion workshop: Would you like to live out your creative side and plan and implement your own cultural project? Then you’ve come to the right place.
Welcome to CREATE.U, the European Capital of Culture program for young people aged 14 to 19. Join the European Capital of Culture Chemnitz 2025! In exciting workshops and a diverse supporting program, you will learn everything you need to turn your ideas into reality.
The kick-off event took place on September 16, 2023. Until March, we will organize our own small youth culture projects in small groups and with the help of experienced mentors. There will also be workshops and joint meetings where we spend time together and experience the city’s culture.
In the course of 2024, you will then have the opportunity to go one step further as “alumni” and organize a European project together with young people from all over Europe – of course you will then also travel to other Capitals of Culture.
It is still possible to register and become part of the CREATE.U program:
