Every year the MASCOT team implements a final social project. This year we are focusing on 3 main aspects: art, social issues and personal development. Thus, the participants learn how art can be a powerful tool for generating positive change while also improving their soft skills. In the end, they can use gained knowledge and experiences to make a real change.

Besides, in consideration of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we focus a lot on ensuring a safe and healthy environment for the participants in MASCOT.
