During "Time to Act" programme participants and facilitators explored social challenges in cities through performances and participatory theatre practices. The youth exchange programme included on-site explorations, small interventions, performances, embodiment practices, and the development of urban board games as a project outcome. This multiscalar approach fostered a special space within the group based on mutual support and a sense of belonging to a community. The diverse backgrounds and unique skills of the participants enriched the learning process and project results. Together, they challenged their perceptions of urban spaces through creative practices and developed new ideas to create more vibrant, friendly, and inclusive cities for youth.
