In The Pocket and VRT join forces to get youngsters excited about upcoming elections

Marie Martens

Marketing Manager

Summer Academy is the perfect vehicle to challenge young graduates’ ability to come up with creative solutions to pressing issues. Last year, we collaborated with Refu Interim and helped political refugees obtain their first Belgian job. This year, VRT has asked us to come up with a solution to get young people excited about the elections. Challenge accepted!



What will happen at Summer Academy?

From 9th August until 12th August, 10 young, creative minds will gather at our kick-ass mansion at Ellezelles for 4 days of hard, inspiring work. Because everything in life is about balance, there will be a pool  and plenty of time to enjoy the team spirit! At the end of the weekend, you’ll get the chance to blow our jury away with a pitch that will make Belgian’s youth engaged with the 2019 elections.

The registration deadline is approaching fast, so click here to sign up and convince us why you deserve a wanted spot on this team of superheroes.

“Engaging people to get involved in the future of our country is no small feat. Let’s combine VRT’s expertise, In The Pocket’s focus on innovation with 10 young graduates’ eagerness and imagination.”

Frederik De Bosschere, Lead Strategist In The Pocket

Why a collaboration between VRT and In The Pocket makes sense

Creative lab, a digital cell within the VRT ecosystem, strongly focuses on content and content formats. In The Pocket, on the other hand, is very apt at design thinking and technology. Combining those two distinct elements is a recipe for success. 

And of course, we at In The Pocket are very excited to engage a young generation to a) work with us and challenge themselves, and b) get hyped about the elections!

“We believe in approaching a challenge from different angles. In The Pocket’s Summer Academy is an interesting way to collaborate with young creatives with a fresh take on this particular project."
