The documentary depicts the first, pilot period of the Tópio program, that took place in 2015-2016 in a public high school in Thessaloniki, Greece, activating the youth and the local neighbourhood through non-formal education and creative placemaking.

This film screening will directly follow Somos Juego in the William H. Whyte venue. 

// Our Vision and Goals // Tópio is a program seeking to function as a catalyst for urban change on a neighbourhood level with a city-wide effect. Our team develops active citizenship empowerment and training programs and projects for all ages, prompting the participants to become the placemakers of their own community. Our aim is to re-imagine the neighbourhood as an open platform of discussion and interaction for the whole city, where the School and the students are the core and leading factors of the transformation both inside and outside the school doors, having culture and creativity as our compass. Besides that, we use creativity, placemaking and non-formal education methods and tools in order to engage local communities, and city administrations and other stakeholders into the city-making movement and process. Tópio was initiated as a program that seeks to give voice and power to a group of people, like youth, who are usually left out of the decision-making and planning processes. Therefore, inclusion is one of the main principles and aims of the programs and activities we develop. We envision a sustainable, inclusive city, consisting of active communities and neighbourhoods, where self-organization meets government facilitation.
