Youth City Hall shows students and teachers transform the learning process using the WELT approach to citizenship education. Combining all school subjects and working together with civil society organisations they confront one of the most pressing issues of our time. That way they show us not only how education can be improved but also how political apathy and the lack of civic competence could be overcome.
