For those who may not be familiar with CrAFt, this group is a dynamic platform that brings together students from various corners of Europe to explore the intersection of creativity, urban development and environmental sustainability. And what better way to kick off the year than by introducing our newest members?

What’s Next for the CrAFt Core Group?
We believe in the power of action, and our Core Group is already gearing up for their next endeavour. They are planning a thought-provoking and innovative activity set in Manchester in partnership with local students.
