The European Agenda has set an objective to create peaceful and inclusive societies, provide access to justice for all and build effective and accountable institutions at all levels under SDG16. Achieving such an extraordinary change requires active citizenship, especially from the younger generation. By empowering young people to be involved in decision-making and contributing to the improvement of their lives and environment, we can create a better world to live in. This requires cultivating hope for the future and taking action in the present to create a better society, a more conscious civilization, and a healthier planet. In this context, museums and photo exhibitions play an important role in shaping the beliefs and values of young people.
