This event represents the culmination of phase one of the Confident Futures project, a collaborative and participatory action research project to learn from successful youth initiatives in Amsterdam and New York City. It explores and showcases mechanisms to build more confident futures for young people and focuses on the importance of creating safe(r) spaces in the city. With examples from Amsterdam and New York City, youth initiatives will share their results and identified working mechanisms through a range of multimedia expressions and interactive panel discussions. This includes Confident Futures project’s university researchers and community-based organization founders and community researchers, the program officer from our funders the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, as well as municipal and local government representatives from New York City and Amsterdam.
