Living Lab Materially

Are you interested in aesthetics, sustainability, and inclusion? 

Participate in the UP2NEB Living Labs!

Materially is hosting one of the UP2NEB project Living Labs held across Europe: this is your opportunity to dive into subjects to make Europe more beautiful, sustainable and inclusive.

What are Living Labs?

The UP2NEB Living Labs are workshops with hands-on activities to explore everyday experiences, views, and real needs of young people and youth communities related to sustainability, inclusion and aesthetics. The insights gathered from the Living Labs will provide a deeper understanding of young people’s ambitions and expectations, and help to tailor the UP2NEB training program to support positive change in local communities.

By being part of the UP2NEB Living Labs, you will contribute to defining the skills and tools to co-create a sustainable, participatory and inclusive future that is beautiful for our eyes, minds and souls.



UP2NEB stands for an interdisciplinary, youth-centred upskilling path leveraging on the New European Bauhaus toward peripheral communities.

Materially is part of the UP2NEB consortium, a group of European NGOs, youth associations, training providers and actors of the creative industries with the aim to engage, connect and empower youth workers from European peripheral areas, while equipping them with co-designed, practical learning resources and updated skills

The topics the UP2NEB project is focusing on, are the New European Bauhaus pillars: aesthetics, sustainability, and inclusion. The New European Bauhaus is a creative and interdisciplinary initiative of the European Commission that connects the European Green Deal to our living spaces and experiences.



The Living Labs are hosted by the UP2NEB consortium partners – CIAPE – Centro Italiano per l’Apprendimento Permanente (Italy – project coordinator), STEP Institut (Slovenia), Materially S.r.l Impresa Sociale (Italy), Quiosq (Netherlands), Innovative Education Center (Austria), Eco Logic (North Macedonia), Pod gradom (Slovenia), Fundación Santa María la Real (Spain), Ankara Aks (Turkey) and Group of the European Youth for Change (Romania) – and open to young people (aged 18-29), youth workers and anyone involved in youth communities of rural and peripheral areas.
