Forty young creatives will be able to participate in the camp organized by Blue Planet Climate Protection Foundation and Hello Wood for free.
Blue Planet Climate Protection Foundation and Hello Wood announced a green design camp for the 15-20 years age group. Those interested can apply by submitting a video reflecting on the experiences of the Covid-19 period, and a professional jury of three will select the forty creatives who will be invited to the camp gratuitously.
The workshops will encompass the of architecture, climate awareness, sustainable development, design, textile and fashion design, photography, animation, graphic design, short films and jewelry design. The participants of the camp to be held early August will have the chance to see what a designer does and also to try it in practice; they can participate in playful programs that also encourage actual action at the same time, building on visual and physical skills as well as knowledge about the built environment. The participants will have a chance to explore, use and develop their artistic and creative skills, and thus to get to know themselves better, too.
The video to be submitted on or before July 19 must reflect on the hardships of the past period, which allowed us to learn just how fragile the balance of human life is. The organizers would like the applicants to propose their own solutions as to how we can return to our communities after being isolated at home, how we can protect these communities by focusing on being together, and keeping the values of our environment and nature conservation in mind.
For further information and to apply, please visit the website of Hello Wood.
