What happened at Action Hub open day?

Crossing Borders together with our partners SIYOW Academy and GirlCult held an open day within our project Action Hub.

The Action Hub open day aimed to spread information about the project and recruit participants that will be an active part of the Action Hub activities.

With more than 80 guests, we kicked off the day with some very festive music by Dj Taf dollar followed by very inspiring speeches by Abdoulie Njie from Siyow, Aisha Tambajang from Crossing Borders and Kaddi Sawaneh from GirlCult. At the end of the day, Pops Diner made sure to fill our stomachs with their delicious burgers.

Action Hub is a project that works to empower young people to become the drivers of change. Our vision is to support young people, by engaging them in meaningful work towards building an active, creative, and aware society.

This project aims to recruit 40 young people between 16 – 24 years old who want to make a difference and who share a common vision and motivation. They will be located in a shared space, where they will work with others to turn their best ideas and passions into actions that create sustainable, and meaningful change in society.

It is a three-month program, where they will be given the tools, support, and network to create and implement an Action Project. During the three months, Action Hub will host weekly training sessions that will provide a combination of lectures, workshops, mentorship, and networking. Interested participants are required to sign up for the course and will be assigned to groups. A 13,000 kroner grant will be provided for each team (3-5 people) to implement their Action Project.

The project aims to recruit about 40 young participants. The purpose of the open/information day event is to mobilize young people to come and learn about the project, by talking to our partners and also to be in a space where community work is discussed to inspire them into being change-makers in their local communities across Copenhagen. The event will include having speakers talking about the importance of community work, a range of local entertainers and we will also be serving food.

SIYOW – SIYOW Academy is a Copenhagen-based social environment for youths who strives to better themselves in their daily crafts as well as keeping them focused on their academic education. Our ambition is to expand our initiative in the Global South where young people can have spaces that they can feel empowered and put their ideas into reality.
GirlCult – GirlCult DK is a Danish online platform that informs and teaches young people about sexual health. It is a safe space where everyone can participate. The platform’s purpose is to break the taboos around the female body and sex, especially because everyone doesn’t have access to reproductive and sexual health.

This project is funded by TuborgFondet and coordinated by Crossing Borders.
