More about the project

The Atlantic Youth Creative Hubs project (AYCH) has been developed with partners across the UK and Europe to support young people aged between 16-30.

It will develop new approaches and interventions within Youth Service and education settings across the Atlantic Area (UK, France, Spain and Portugal).

Connecting people, ideas, skills, technologies and enterprises across a network of hubs, the project will unlock the creative, entrepreneurial potential of young people, focussing on key themes such as innovation, co-creation of products, social entrepreneurship and employability.

As a result, more young people will be able to develop creative, digital and entrepreneurial skills building and prototyping product and service ideas to address societal issues across the Atlantic Area.
