In Brief

About the Project

More than half of all refugees in Germany are under 24 years old. Many of these young refugees attend preparatory classes at vocational and general education schools. Often, there is a lack of contact opportunities to get to know students in regular classes. Furthermore, vocational schools in particular are facing the challenge of preparing young people for a globalized and diverse work environment and teaching the necessary intercultural competence. This is where the worldlab project comes in: It brings together young people in preparatory and regular classes of vocational schools to discuss shared values.
