WHO WE ARE

MESH Collective is an award-winning educational initiative that has pioneered the field of digital, extracurricular youth education over the past decade.

Working together with influential peers, MESH develops social web campaigns and social video series for foundations, ministries, NGOs or institutions for political education. Complex topics are prepared journalistically in a thorough and accessible way. Knowledge is conveyed in the context of young people’s daily lives and visualized according to their viewing habits.

MESH‘s diverse creator network communicates content aimed at their target group in an authentic way and across platforms.

MESH Collective promotes civic dialogue inside and outside the digital space. Sociopolitical topics such as climate change, (digital) politics, democracy, science and research in the age of “fake news”, (cultural, sexual, religious) identity politics, discrimination and community building, social change and globalization, are all conveyed through popular genres.

MESH offers easy access to complex topics; it empowers and encourages reflection. It works to give teenagers and young adults a better understanding of social contexts and sets the course for them to develop a more active participation and critical opinions.

#MoreThanMS

→ Health

#MoreThanMS is a campaign initiated by the german Hertie Foundation. The main goal of the campaign is to create public awareness for multiple sclerosis, an illness that impacts 2.8 mio. people worldwide. Destigmatizing the representation of multiple sclerosis by the media, the initiative offers new perspectives on the so called "illness with 1000 faces". The message of #MoreThanMS is, that patients  are way more than their diagnosis and that their lifes can be continued individually with self-determination.In cinematic music videos a diverse cast of three MS patients with varing states of the disease are being portrayted. Marie (29), Karolina (31) and Andreas (58) are #MoreThanMS.

STOPPT KINDERARMUT

→ Social Justice

Every child living in poverty is one too many! Even in a rich country like Germany. And yet there are 2.8 million children and young people in Germany who are growing up in financial poverty. Even though they should all have the right to live as protected and carefree as possible. That is why the initiative #StopptKinderarmut (Stop Child Poverty), which we are working on together with the Bertelsmann Stiftung, is committed to combating child poverty in Germany.

An Open Letter Video is part of the multi-staged initiative, in which several German celebrities demand from politicians and society to finally take actions against child poverty in Germany. And with the Blackbox Monlogues, acutely affected youngsters get their say.
Additionally, five YouTube stars, who were themselves formerly affected by child poverty, talk about their own experiences on their YouTube channels. Amongst them are justCaan, Matondo Castlo, Kati Karenina, Anderson Rey and Leeroy Matata, who is interviewing a formerly affected peer.

GENERATION GRENZENLOS

→ Civic Engagement

How can civic engagement be made more visible? For the non-profit Hertie Foundation, MESH Collective produces 30 portraits of young, committed people who work in a variety of ways for democratic cohesion and empathy. Whether in the fight against racism, as a woman in the voluntary fire brigade or founder of an own citizens‘ participation forum. The social media awareness campaign Generation Grenzenlos shows how much an individual can move and that each of us has the chance to actively shape our society.

OZON

→ Sustainability

OZON is the first format in the funk universe that deals exclusively with environmental issues. Each week, one of our hosts explores one specific question, which we approach from multiple angles: using hard facts, practical everyday tips and community challenges. We draw connections between global environmental issues, like microplastics in seas, and the daily decisions that we all make. OZON was created and is produced in collaboration with UFA X.

EARTH OVERSHOOT DAY

→ Science Awareness

Together with WWF Germany, MESH Collective is producing a nine-part series to mark the annual Earth Overshoot Day. Currently, mankind consumes significantly more resources than the earth can reproduce within a year. The Earth Overshoot Day signifies the date, onwards from which we start using more from nature than we can repay. But what exactly does it mean to live within the boundaries of what nature can supply? What are the key factors driving climate change and what role do our personal actions play?

DEINE WÜRDE

→ Building Democracy

What does human dignity actually stand for? If you ask people, nearly everyone will quote the German constitution: "Human dignity is inviolable.” But what exactly do we mean by dignity? In celebration of the 70th anniversary of the German Basic Law, the initiative Deine Würde aims to bring the abstract concept of dignity to life in various phases. A social video on Facebook and YouTube creates an emotional access point into the topic and raises awareness for the importance of dignity for our daily co-existence. The immersive play HUMARITHM deals with dignity in the age of artificial intelligence. Meanwhile, various creators also address the topic of dignity on their own channels.
