25 young adults around the world debate climate change.
Together with our partner YPIDA from Turkey, VSOW hosted the digital event series “The Intercultural E-Debate”.
For one week, young adults from Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas discussed moving issues of our time, such as climate change and its impact on our environment, the corona pandemic and freedom of expression. In this way, the participants could get to know different perceptions and debate possible solutions with people from other contexts. The exchange also aimed at strengthening the soft skills of young people. In the workshops, participants were able to practice intercultural communication skills, critical thinking and creativity. Daily yoga sessions for relaxation provided mental input, and during an intercultural evening, the participants were able to share their experiences with each other. The project itself was sponsored by the German-Turkish Youth Bridge in Düsseldorf.
