Our subject we had to work on was “The Challenge of Immigration and National Identity”. This means we concentrated ourselves on the asylum method of the EU and on the experience of other cultures, therefore we did different projects in class like a homemade video that presents immigrants in Waldbröl. We also were in search of our own footprint of immigration. to an open-minded society.
Additionally we helped a Syrian refugee family who already have been in Germany for 9 months to move in their own flat. On our exchange trips to Milan, Berlin and Leno we could compare our experience with students from other states and nationalities.
Working on all these topics were a big chance for us to understand the process of immigration better and to uncover possible prejudices we had in front of immigrants or other cultures. Now we want to share our deliverables with interested people who want to be a support on the way to an open-minded society.
