Think Europe – International Youth Education in the Europahaus Marienberg
We design innovative education projects for young Europeans. Our methods always focus on the needs of our young participants - diverse, vast, deep, carefully invented, playful, exciting and transformational. Our motto: "Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn."
of building bridges.
In our European projects we are dealing with the most decisive European issues and dimensions: The history of the European Union, political institutions, law-making processes, everyday life within the European Union etc. To achieve our learning goals we employ non-formal and digital methods, which we develop further on a steady basis. We do not believe in cognition only, instead we are trusting in interactive, collaborative and engaging learning processes: Mobile Learning, Design Thinking, Storytelling, Barcamps, Drama Games, Workshops, Maker Spaces, Art...
In our education centre we can host up 5 EU-Seminars with up to 25 participants simultaneously. Our projects are individually designed in accordance with the needs of our partners and participants and usually last 3 to 5 days.
Our big international “Think Europe” projects are open for 40–60 participants from all over Europe. Within these projects young Europeans dive deep into a lively and creative learning about themselves, European politics, society as well as collective and individual realities. In these international projects we do not only deal with current European challenges, but ask ourselves the great ontological questions about freedom, our own individual potentials and how we can bring change to the world. Our international projects are catering to a new mind set needed to enhance the European ideas and narratives, thus we employ a vast range of methods derived from political education, arts, wilderness training and personal development. Our international projecta re usually 6 to 8 days long and are funded – among others – by the Erasmus+ programme.
One must genuinely create Europe.
