MOH – Mobility Opportunities Hub

MOH – Mobility Opportunities Hub is a sociocultural association in Bari, whose aim is to promote mobility among young people, create synergies with local and European associations and trace a link between social and artistic work. Its roots are in the city of Bari, in the south of Italy. Our areas of action are youth mobility in Europe, artistic mediation and digital communication.

Our goal is both to promote opportunities for youth mobility, encourage personal and professional growth, and activate socio-cultural initiatives, in order to bring an added value to the territory. The intent is to encourage local youth to meet young people from other European countries. This encounter with the “other”, experienced as an enrichment, will spontaneously create active participation in civil society, facilitating also a change in the reality in which we live.
