Testing-Ground – Call for Submissions: Youthhood
Register/Submit Deadline: Tuesday, May 4, 2021
"TESTING-GROUND invites submissions for the third issue, Youthhood. Young people are founding movements against injustices. Teenagers are lobbying their politicians to add climate change to the curriculum. Children are walking out on classes to participate in demonstrations and strikes. There is increasing concern that global elders have failed to address – and in many cases exacerbated – social, economic, and ecological inequities. Urgent, uninhibited, and technically proficient – you can’t fool the children of the revolution. When it comes to the creation of environmentally just and hopeful worlds, young people are proving their worth and the future is in their hands … or is it? Issue 03: Youthhood will consider the world through youthful eyes, make evident young ambitions, and aim to empower young people to take on the design of their own cities and landscapes."
