Empowerment Through Participation: Advancing Opportunities for Immigrants and Refugees

  • Eureka! Ländle Meets California
  • In dialogue

Baden-Württemberg and California have both been experiencing a high influx of refugees in the past couple of years. Upon their arrival, refugees and other newcomers have to rebuild their lives from the ground up. The support they receive and the resources they have access to play an important part in their successful integration.
What can we do to empower refugees and immigrants in their new communities? How do we help them to overcome the challenges that often accompanies the ‘unknown’? Do approaches to capacity building differ in California and Baden-Württemberg, and what are possible advantages and disadvantages of those approaches? Our experts share their experiences and discuss different ways to empower newcomers in our respective states. Please join us for this moderated conversation and make sure to bring your questions.

Organized by the DAZ Stuttgart in cooperation with Carl-Schurz-Haus Freiburg, DAI Heidelberg, and d.a.i. Tübingen and generously supported by the State Ministry of Baden-Württemberg.

The event is part of an event series initiated by the State Ministry of Baden-Württemberg to enhance the relationship between the two sister states California, USA, and Baden-Württemberg, Germany. The virtual discussion will be moderated and will be followed by a Q&A with the audience.

With: Cynthia, Buiza, Mosab Tato, Maria Tramountani, Karen Tumlin & Sinja Hiss
