Good Ideas from Gütersloh and Barcelona!
Webinar participants will learn about:
- A Good Idea! In Germany, the “Alle Kids Sind VIPs” (“All Kids Are VIPs”) is an exciting student-led program that was founded by the Bertelsmann Stiftung where it was a runaway success. The “All Kids Are VIPs” campaign invites German students to find innovative ways to create welcoming environments for newcomers and improve integration at their schools.
- The benefits of replication! Replicated in Spain, the “Eres joven, ¡triunfarás!” (“You are young, you will succeed!”) program builds on the success of the German campaign. It raises awareness about the role of youth in the integration of migrants, and promotes the celebrity-supported campaign to parents and policy-makers.
- Discover how you can make this Good Idea work for you! Good ideas about integration practice, like all good ideas, travel. Participants are invited to explore how this Good Idea could be replicated or adapted in their home city.
