The AYCH project, is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund through the Interreg Atlantic Area Programme, designed to promote transnational cooperation among 36 Atlantic regions in five European countries. The AYCH aims to develop new approaches and interventions within existing youth settings, as well as in both formal and non-formal education settings, to connect young people, creative and social business leaders, with experts in emerging and disruptive technologies and creative industries. This will take place across a network of Atlantic Horizon Hubs that will help them to develop ideas, new products and services.
Oli Raud, Strategic Funding Manager and AYCH Project Manager at Plymouth College of Art, said: “Seeing young people recognising the importance that digital and enterprise skills have in helping them to shift their societal roles from passive consumers, to active makers and agents of change, was a real privilege. We’re proud that the college is able to lead these activities, both in the city and across Europe with our transnational partners.
“There are more events and opportunities coming through in the project, locally and among the partner network, that students and young people across Plymouth can get involved with, so we’d be very happy to hear from you if you want to find out more.
