“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”
At Crossing Borders, we go together. And as a member, you become part of our global commitment to connect people across cultures, to bridge differences with dialogue, and to build a new generation of active citizens.
Over the past 20 years our family has expanded its reach across the globe. And for all of our fun and enjoyable differences we have one thing in common; A deep passion to inspire and empower young people to become the change they want to see.
We would love for you to join us in that mission. In fact, we need you. Sign up here, or please stop by and meet us! You will usually find us (all 20+ different nationalities) toiling away at the wonderful Ubuntu house in the heart of Copenhagen.
At the moment, we work across Africa, Europe and the caucuses.
- We work on empowering young people to become the change they want to see. From creating activists to social entrepreneurs, we work on different projects in different countries in Africa, Europe, and the caucuses to build the capacity of young people using different methods to advocate for a cause that will make a change in their local area.
- We run school workshops using non-formal education methods. With an international team coming from different parts of the world, we form what we call the School Workshops. We go to schools in Denmark and run workshops with the students using non-formal educational methods to bring global issues into the classroom.
- We work on putting the knowledge and the experiences we gain through our work into curriculums and courses. Some of our projects are aiming to create a database where we share smart practices with our partners around the world and make it accessible for educators, youth workers, and other NGOs around us. Besides that, we also work with a partnership with Canopy Lab on creating online courses on many different topics, from Localizing the SDGs to communication and conflict management. The course’s content created by very experienced people and members of Crossing Borders.
- Finally, you are helping us to keep the CB family going, by making it possible for us to have our Ubuntu house in the heart of Copenhagen where we meet from more than 20 different nationalities to achieve our mission.
Please join us and become a member today!
