LIFT Theme: 


LIFT 2019 believes that participation is a great way to get people to share their thoughts and innovate new means to build a better future. 


LIFT 2019 offers a variety of different case studies on participation. Erika Rushton speaks about Liverpool and describes how the city has used art and creativity as a tool to change. 


Touko Hujanen is a photojournalist who got bored in 2014. He wanted to change the way how we make media content. He came up with Uuden Maan Sanomat: a project, which is not only a newspaper - but an open invitation for everyone to join.

Gutsy Go is a project where young people change the world action by action.


LIFT is also a platform for everybody to come up with new ideas to make joint action together.
