Times are a changing and young people are changing too. That’s why education has to make it possible for young people to find an own way in the future. In May 2005 the project ‘To-Gather’ was born during the annual CiCe-Conference in Ljubljana, Slovenia. The aim was to make a learning arrangement for young people between 3 and 25 years in order to develop an own identity in Europe. Step by step young people should be able to become active and democratic citizens. For that reason several modern learning strategies and didactics were used as well as new insights in philosophy, psychology, history, sociology, economy, pedagogy and aesthetics. The main tool to combine all these elements and to reach young people is music and the film ‘It’s hard to become who you are’. You are welcome to To-Gatherland, a land that’s not on the map, but where many young people are looking for.
