Marion, Thibaut and Arthur, three students from Maastricht University are winners of the We Build this City contest. This contest has been set up to stimulate social projects that bring people together. What do they have to say about their project and how will they spend their prize-money?
This year’s successful event ‘CODE MARKET’ was organised by Michelle. CODE043 takes care of this event as commissioned by various municipalities. During April we visit high schools in the south of Limburg during their midday break, to inform youth in an interactive way about partying safely. By working together with various partners, we touch upon topics such as alcohol, drugs, sex, sexuality and senseless violence. The activities are both educational and interactive, which naturally leads to conversations. Additionally, we work in a peer-to-peer way, meaning we incorporate our own CODE crew and ambassadors.
