Goethe-Institut Skopje partnered with What the Future Wants through their educational programs and work with civil society organisations to foster critical digital literacy in young people throughout the network of Goethe-Instituts in Southeast Europe.
In the first phase of the project, Goethe-Institut Skopje hosted co-development workshops with young people feeding into the creation process of the exhibition. In a second stage, and in collaboration with Goethe-Instituts across Europe, they coordinated the translation of the What the Future Wants exhibition into several languages including German, Macedonian and Albanian. Finally, the Institute has worked with selected schools and civil society organisations to disseminate the materials and host exhibitions across Southeast Europe. They have created safe spaces for learning and critical thinking about the impact of digital technologies on the lives of young people and their communities.
In this regard, we would like to highlight the What the Future Wants exhibition hosted in October 2022, in Skopje, North Macedonia, in the the framework of the project “Der gläserne Mensch“ (The Transparent Man), a collaboration between various regional Goethe-Instituts. The exhibition was visited by young people, educators, civil society organisations and decision makers and was part of a larger outreach campaign on social media and media outlets in the country.
This multi-layered and long-term partnership has allowed for ownership of the project by the partner but also for a symbioses of the goals of What the Future Wants and the work the Goethe-Institut has been developing on the topics of digital and media literacy in Southeast Europe.
