youth4planet is a non-profit association (or several associations) that encourages children and young people to make films on pressing issues of our time using the simplest technical means. To this end, youth4planet holds workshops at schools, universities or companies. The participants only need a smartphone. By working on their own short film, they simultaneously become aware of the topics, which are always related to the 17 goals for sustainable development.
Founder Joerg Altekruse had the idea for youth4planet since 2012. In 2014, the first association was founded in Hamburg. However, after numerous rejected applications, the idea was on the verge of extinction in 2016 – until I was commissioned to help.
The problem was that, on the one hand, there was no uniform or professional-looking design. Secondly, the concept, which was actually coherent, was not communicated clearly enough in some cases.
A success story
Only within one year after the branding, youth4planet got first support in Luxembourg and soon an association was founded. Today, the project is supported by the Luxembourg government with a six-figure sum annually and with several half-time positions. In addition, there are now youth4planet associations in Austria and the USA.
