  • Ambassadors in Sneakers


    When we travel to foreign countries, we quickly become representatives of our own country. In its „Ambassadors in Sneakers“ program, the German American Institute Tuebingen creates projects that help young people to become self-confident and interculturally skilled citizen diplomats, who fulfill their role responsibly while having a lot of fun. Our first project – Ambassadors in Sneakers (I) – was a high school exchange program for three German and three US schools between 2014 and 2016.

Ambassadors in Sneakers (II)

A Young Leaders’ Transatlantic Summer Academy on Human Rights


 

Ambassadors in Sneakers – A Young Leaders’ Transatlantic Summer Academy on Human Rights 

 

What?

The Young Leaders’ Transatlantic Summer Academy on Human Rights is a four-week educational program (split in two trips of two weeks each) which brings together youth councils from Germany and the USA in the summer of 2017. The central focus will be on the topic of human rights. It is against this background that participants will learn about both countries’ political structures and international networking. While travelling together in the USA and Germany, the young leaders will become familiar with important places and institutions that are significant for developing and defending human rights. At a time when thousands are fleeing their homelands due to political/religious persecution, war, and famine, human rights is a topic which young people of today often question. During their trips, they will meet activists, people affected by recent events, media representatives, speakers, and politicians in Germany and the USA, and will have the opportunity to learn from them and with them, thus helping gain a fuller perspective on the issues at hand.

 

Who?

In 2017 members of local or regional youth councils or youth parliaments from the German state of Baden-Wuerttemberg as well as representatives of U.S. youth councils, mayor’s advisory youth councils, or youth committees in Georgia are participating.

 

Where and when is it?

The Transatlantic Summer Academy 2017 is set up in four parts on two trips.:

Trip 1: Atlanta/Georgia & New York City (Sat. Jun. 03 – Sun. Jun. 18)

Trip 2: Tuebingen/Baden-Wuerttemberg & Berlin ( Sat. Jul. 22 – Sun. Aug. 6)
