WE CARE FOR THE FUTURE TOGETHER

 

Since 2007 Gdansk and Potsdam SI Clubs have been running the project 'We care for the future-together” which answers the objective Education of SI Programme. The idea of the project is to enable young women from Poland and Germany, two historical neighbours, friends and enemies , to learn more about their history, cultural similarities and differences, habits and traditions, also to recognize stereotype opinions and find the way to overcome prejudices. Organizing one week summer meetings for Polish and German girls aged 16 to 20 in Krzyzowa (Kreislau), Poland, the place of the Foundation for Mutual Understanding in Europe we provide the girls with the possibility to see each other every day life styles , preferences in music, films or art and spend nice time in beautiful surrounding of Silesia. Every year Gdansk SI Club cooperating with Potsdam Club and other Polish clubs looks for and decides about the leading subjects for workshops and couches. Sightseeing of Wroclaw and surrounding are the standard points of the visit to Krzyzowa. The workshops’ agenda for 2014 will be announced soon.
