Our network is composed of organizations active in six countries.
In Rennes (France), Coop’Eskemm, a cooperative research office specialized in social and youth policies, coordinates the network. Keur Eskemm, an association that conducts activities with young people, particularly in their artistic expressions and practices, supports the mobilization of young people from Rennes participating in the activities. Keur Eskemm is also involved in the work on temporary occupation of vacant buildings, because of its experiences in Rennes. The association d’Ici ou d’Ailleurs also participates in the activities by supporting the participation of volunteers and young people in exile in the various youth exchanges.
In Italy, Baumhaus is an association that supports young people in their artistic practices in Bologna. The collective is involved in a work on the creative practices of young people as well as on their mobilizations within the framework of the festivals that they organize. SMK Factory is also actively involved in the work in Bologna and has made the various videos produced on the temporary occupation and artistic practices of young people in Italy and at European level.
In Romania, two associations are involved in the activities. In Sibiu, the association Reset works with young people on their commitments and is particularly interested in the most vulnerable. Reset coordinates a work for the network on the commitment of marginalized youth, especially taken in charge by the institutions.
