TEDxKassel – 1st all virtual TEDx Conference in Kassel

Bremen, July 2020

Let’s Bring Tales to Life…

After last year’s successful conference in 2019, TEDxKassel is going into the second round. While last year’s motto Tales of tomorrow included visions about issues that will face mankind in the upcoming decades, this year’s conference – organized by FLUDH – University of Kassel, BanSenSuk e.V. and movingschool e.V. – is going to bring these tales to life with visionaries that find solutions for seemingly insurmountable problems today.

Save the date: TEDxKassel – Bring Tales to Life – 24 & 25 October 2020

It is our aim to foster an active exchange of ideas and to show the world that each and everyone can make a difference. We are going to motivate our audience to take responsibility for a better future.

On the basis of concise and compelling TEDx talks relating to the subject of social and cultural entrepreneurship, we offer national as well as international visionaries the opportunity to share their social, cultural or ecological ideas across all disciplines of society. These solutions can therefore open new perspectives, broaden horizons and promote sustainable change.

Blended Learning – Modul “Bildung – ein Recht für alle Kinder”

Bremen, Juni 2020

Bildung – was ist das und was bedeutet sie für Schüler*innen? Wie gestaltet sich Bildung in anderen Länder? Ist der Zugang gerecht gewährleistet? All diese Fragen betreffen gerade in diesen Zeiten alle Eltern, Lehrer*innen und Schüler*innen weltweit.

Im Moment sind Workshops an den Schulen nicht oder nur sehr begrenzt möglich. Deshalb habe ich in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Bremer Informationszentrum für Menschenrechte und Entwicklung (biz) das Modul „Bildung – ein Recht für ALLE Kinder“ für digital-analoge Anwendung umgearbeitet.

Das Modul ist geeignet für die Klassen 6-9, vor allem für die Fächer Deutsch, GuP, Politik, Geographie, WUK und Philosophie.

Zu den neuen Materialien gehören:

Das Angebot reiht sich ein in die Bildungsangebote, die das biz dauerhaft zur Verfügung stellt. Es ist auch auf itsLearning verfügbar.

BanSenSuk e.V. Founding Meeting

Bremen, August 2018

On 25 August experts in international development, development workers, scientists, entrepreneurs and diplomats – all former colleagues in Laos – got together for a founding ceremony of “BanSenSuk e.V.”.

The association – literally translated as “The village of hundred-thousand-fold happiness” – aims to support young people in LDC and LLDC countries in their occupational development and in paving their way for a self-determined future.

BanSenSuk’s commitment is based on support at three levels:

  1. Individual mini projects, i.e. support of start-ups, education and training of individuals
  2. Workshops and trainings, i.e. Design-Thinking or Business-Model-Development workshops
  3. Cooperation and networks, i.e. support existing activities of partner organizations through capacity building, training of trainers (ToT), studies and evaluations

As a first step, the association will develop pilot measures, firstly by promoting education and training, and secondly by supporting small initiatives. On the basis of experiences gained, concepts will be updated for future programs and projects.

More information can be assessed soon under www.bansensuk.de.

Tracer Study on graduates from Lao Agriculture and Forestry Colleges

Vientiane, June 2018

The agriculture and forestry colleges in Laos are a major educator for skilled workforce in the agriculture, livestock, forestry and irrigation sector. With their student-centered and practice-oriented approach they emphasis on linking training to the labor market.

The recent tracer studies of higher-diploma graduates from 2016 & 2017 of three colleges brought up some encouraging examples of young graduates engaged in self-employed businesses. One inspiring example is Mr Duangda who is running an earth-worm-compost business in Sangthong district, now able to generate sufficient income for the whole family and to support his younger brother in further education.

The full tracer study reports can be assessed at www.laofab.org.
