Up in Berlin in the following week: A street festival in the course of the festivities for the German reunification. These festivities take place in a different state of Germany each year and are around “to celebrate freedom, diversity and democracy“. And we’re very proud to get a chance to speak at this inclusive event. Because there’s a few challenges ahead of us.
One of it is to channel the power, energy and motivation which the people felt during the process of the re-unification of Germany into a positive striving for a united Europe. We grew up without a divided Europe or a divided Germany, and we are still wondering why European experiences and biographies, apart from short vacation trips, keep to be an elitist thing.
Our solution to change this is introducing a European Community Service. It would lift our Europe out of a small, mainly academic and political bubble, and deliver for each individual and citizen. This is what we will strive for – and what we will be giving a talk about during the “Nur mit Euch” / “Only with You” called street festival for social participation and engagement.
Meet us on Monday, 01/10/2018, 14.20 in the TINCON tent over here:
