In times where the idea of a unified Europe is facing great challenges, we are having a lively and necessary debate on the future of Europe that extends across national and societal borders. Europe’s diverse society offers great potential for finding solutions to societal problems and challenges.
Our aim is to bring perspectives into the debate that had previously hardly been represented. In this way, we reach young people, who previously had little to do with politics in the European Union and its neighboring countries, in a targeted manner with educational programs.
We support committed citizens and relevant civic organizations in becoming active even across borders and in developing a European consciousness outside of formal institutions. We foster exchange among the people of Europe in order to break down prejudices and to negotiate common European values. In the process, we give particular strength to perspectives from Central and Eastern Europe in the European conversation.
Education on Europe is a program for citizenship educators on European issues. The program aims to create, try out and evaluate new approaches to make European integration and EU politics more accessible to learners.
We strengthen the collaboration between actors from the cultural field, the public, and the private sector throughout Europe and support projects for sustainable urban development through cultural activities.
The training program educates decision-makers from politics, media, administration, business, and society about the Ukraine and gives them the opportunity to network with German and Ukrainian stakeholders.
Outstanding students from the states of the Western Balkans will obtain the opportunity to gain international experience, to expand their understanding for European structures, and to get to know each other.
