  • Info

    This initiative was created to find a solution to a wide range of social issues. How can we as a society help schools and children in times of teacher shortages, growing inequality, and far-reaching digitalization? The Young Innovators Programme helps take the pressure off schools, and introduces children to new technologies outside of class, where they can learn more about themselves and the world around them.

    The Young Innovators Programme is an initiative of the Amsterdam Centrum district and Marineterrein Amsterdam, in cooperation with Dock.
