The room full of energy and ideas – first workshop weekend: check

8 students with newcomer background and 2 facilitators from all over Germany gathered in Berlin to get ideas of ways to poltically engage in the German society and raise voices for diverse and rather unheared populations. From Saturday to Sunday, participants exchanged on first biographical points in time where each of them encountered politics in any possible way, defined politics and narrow but also broader definitions of it, got first insights into tools to better participate in political contexts and brainstormed ideas to have an impact on societal debates themselves. Discussions became extremely lively when we all imagined to be places on a different planet called Partizipio where – in a joint process – a new constitution had to be formed being sensible to very diverse population backgrounds. Next stop: first weekend in September to discuss concrete ideas of all participants to make individual differences in the public political discourse.
