Call for Youth & Festival’s Best Stories
2022 is the European Year of Youth. Young people deserve the closest attention. They have been giving so much in the last two years, putting their lives on hold in solidarity with older and more vulnerable people. We want to thank them for the way they have behaved. This is why we dedicate this call for stories to them.
