Young people’s engagement in public memory work for envisioning possible futures: A study inside the Ashoka Changemaker schools in Europe
The research project will study what are the competences, practices, and attitudes that an individual enables to participate in public memory work. It will seek to understand what forms of social organisation support making memories for future possibilities among young people, what encourages participatory memory work (PMW), and under which conditions PMW is empowering for school students.
