German-Polish Youth Office turns 25!
Birthday bash at Berlin's Kalkscheune
The international youth organisation known as the German-Polish “Jugendwerk” (DPJW) will celebrate 25 years of German-Polish cooperation at the Kalkscheune in Berlin on 8 June 2016. Together with two of its supporters – the Foundation for German-Polish Cooperation and the German-Polish Science Foundation – the German-Polish “Jugendwerk” will host a group of colleagues, supporters and friends and showcase the fruits of their labour over the past decades.
Each year, the Jugendwerk organises roughly 3,000 youth exchanges. Thus far, roughly 2.7 million young people took part in nearly 70,000 projects created and implemented by the DPJW. The committed team at the DPJW consists of countless organisers and helpers, including teachers, advisors and instructors working in the fields of culture and sport. The organisation also enjoys the support of thousands of parents eager for their kids to engage in meaningful exchange between Germany and Poland.
The “CampTogether Wroclaw” gathering, which will run from 6–11 June as part of the celebrations surrounding Wroclaw’s tenure as European Capital of Culture 2016, will also highlight these exchanges.
