From May 5 to 12, 2024, the Gustav Stresemann Institute in Bad Bevensen will host the professional exchange program "Living Democracy – Approaches to Strengthen Respect and Cohesion in Israel & Germany" together with their Israeli partner SPARK PRO from Kibbutz Gvat.

This seminar addresses youth leaders, out of school educators, teachers, students and other multipliers of youth work in both countries. The focus will be on the question how a peaceful living together in complex societies can be promoted with the help of pedagogical approaches, which are developed to strengthen democratic competencies and to raise an attitude of respect towards the other.

Participants should not only get to know these dialog-orientated concepts theoretically, but by experience and common reflection upon personal insights. More over the opportunity to learn from each other will be given by the presentation of good practice examples of projects dealing with different cultural groups, milieus, beliefs, lifestyles, etc... The first part will be the seminar in Bad Bevensen, the second part will be in Israel in October 2024.

This seminar will be funded by ConAct – Coordination Center for German-Israeli Youth Exchange.
