The world is changing and at the same time, young people find it difficult to seek motivation and find out what talents suit them. Regions are additionally challenged with different social challenges and especially young people can play an important role in this. For this, I4NATURE facilitates a location in the region where young people can be helped and where they can discover their talents with challenges in the region in, for example, healthcare or culture. Over 50 young people started working with their talent in this way in Vught. Therefore, the hub had the function of breathing new life into local heritage; organising a festival, forming a the company Young Nobles and working on Vught’s challenges. A win-win situation!
