Networking trip to Dresden

Our WSH project aims to be active in the German states of Berlin, Brandenburg and Saxony and to set up youth groups in these locations. Since the worldwide pandemic broke out at the beginning of our project, we lacked for a very long time the possibilities of a trip to the other federal states with our youth group to see with which forces there we can cooperate. But as soon as that was possible, we traveled with the youth group from Berlin to Dresden.

In Dresden we met some Roma youth and activists and talked with them about our goals and wishes regarding the project. They were lively conversations! Along the way, we were able to see some of the beautiful city of Dresden, which was a bonus point. We are really looking forward to building up our youth group in Saxony. Hopefully we can continue to make trips like this to keep the networking going between groups.

Networking meeting in Eberswalde

Today we are in Eberswalde – with our great youth group from Berlin and with Merle, who is responsible for our Brandenburg group. Here we met with two other Roma youths and talked about a possible youth group in Brandenburg. Before, such a meeting was not possible because of the pandemic. As long as the weather cooperates and there is no lockdown, we would like to continue organizing such networking meetings. The best way to talk is face to face! In the near future it will become clearer if and how we will build up our Brandenburg youth group. If you live in Brandenburg and know interested young people with a Romani background or with experiences of racist discrimination who would like to be trained as peer trainers so that they can later report on antigypsyism in educational institutions, contact us!
