Education on Europe

Together with citizenship educators on European issues, we create, try out and evaluate new approaches to make European integration and EU politics more accessible to learners. The aim is to foster the emergence of concepts to reach young people not usually included in European political thinking.

Yallah! Dedicated Young Muslims

We support projects carried out by young Muslims and creative ideas that show just how diverse "our Islam" is in Germany. Projects and initiatives conducted by young Muslims between 16 and 30 years of age who want to change something in their living environment can now apply for funding. The young people should apply as well as organize and carry out the projects themselves.
