24 participants (around 16-22 years) from Germany, Italy, Poland, and Denmark will meet in Germany and Denmark to learn together and get a better understanding of today’s refugee situation.
The project wants to let young people develop their own vision of peaceful living together beyond cultural diversity and based on shared
values and mutual respect and wants to let them find possibilities on how to put them into practice. Young people need chances and opportunities to take action, to discover their capacities and possibilities and to get involved in decision-making processes.
Through interactive workshops and group projects, you will learn about issues of identity, culture, and borders. This will lead to a deeper understanding and empathy for refugees and migrants toward peaceful existence beyond cultural differences, nationality, and racism.
The project will be organized in collaboration with a museum about refugees to put today’s migration discussion in the context of past refugees’ stories.
