Youth in the City set out to develop a model of storytelling and educational intervention that may provide an effective and critical opposition to racism and xenophobia, by collaborating with local communities at the development of educational and media resources on the importance of migration and transculturality in contemporary society.

On this page you can find our educational guidelines, research articles and links to useful digital tools to replicate our participatory storytelling model  in your own city.
