The Photobook “Let’s get on board” was born within the project “Let’s get on board”, which involved a group of 20 young people from 6 municipalities (Drapia, Parghelia, Ricadi, Spilinga, Tropea, Zaccanopoli) of the Province of Vibo Valentia. The project, financed by the European Youth Foundation of the Council of Europe, was born from the ideas of some young people in the area, who identified a common objective: to contribute to a rediscovery and enhancement of the territory through the lens of young active citizens.
The photobook is intended to take the reader on a small journey to come across the beautiful things in the area, but also to identify the gaps, seen through the eyes of the young people who live there. Through the photobook, these same young people put forward proposals for change that only all together – administrations, associations, schools, citizens – can implement in order to live in ‘the territory I would like’. The photobook is meant to be an invitation to an ever broader collaboration towards an inclusive and sustainable reality in which leaving is a choice and not the only option.
