Creative minds are free in their imagination and the working means which sometimes can lead to the overuse of materials and over-waste. 110 participants of the Multiplier Events of the KA2 project YouCreate in Luxembourg, Greece, Sweden
and Germany had their input for making the recommendations addressed to policymakers for developing encouragement systems for Creative and Cultural industry (CCI) workers. The open letter has been sent to several decision-making institutions in the respective countries and at the European level. The institutions include:

In Germany:

  • Senatsverwaltung für Mobilität, Verkehr, Klimaschutz und Umwelt (Senate Department for Mobility, Transport, Climate Protection, and Environment)
  • Senatsverwaltung für Bildung, Jugend und Familie (Senate Department for Education, Youth, and Family)

The intention is to encourage collaboration between governments, industry stakeholders, and creative workers to foster a more sustainable and environmentally conscious creative and cultural industry.
