1979 revolution in Nicaragua - back then the beginning of a dream for many leftists and today?

A dream of revolution, documentary, 95 minutes written and directed by Petra Hoffmann
Als vor knapp 45 Jahren die Revolution in Nicaragua siegt, beginnt ein Traum. Eine junge Generation übernimmt die Regierung in einem Land großer Utopien. Allein aus Westdeutschland kommen 15.000 „BrigadistInnen“ zum Wiederaufbau des ausgebluteten Landes: Liberale, Grüne, GewerkschafterInnen, SozialdemokratInnen, Linke und KirchenvertreterInnen ernten Kaffee und Baumwolle, bauen Schulen, Kindergärten und Krankenstationen. Keine Bewegung hat so viele Menschen mobilisiert. Was ist aus den Wünschen und Träumen der RevolutionärInnen und ihrer UnterstützerInnen geworden? 2018 wurde ein Aufstand gegen den einstigen Revolutionshelden und heutigen Präsidenten Ortega blutig niedergeschlagen.
Mit ihrem Film „Ein Traum von Revolution“ gibt die Regisseurin Petra Hoffmann Einblick in die Geschichte von Nicaragua und vom Kampf gegen den Diktator Somoza bis heute. Sie selbst ist in den 1980er Jahren als Brigadistin nach Nicaragua gegangen, um die Bevölkerung in ihrem Kampf gegen den Diktator Somoza zu unterstützen.
Für ihren Film verwendet sie historische Filmausschnitte, Statements von an dem Prozess Beteiligten, wie zum Beispiel der Schriftstellerin Giocanda Belli, der Ortega 2023 die Staatsbürgerschaft von Nicaragua entzogen hat, aber auch Aussagen von ehemaligen KampfgefährtInnen aus Europa, mit denen sie sich in Costa Rica an der Grenze zu Nicaragua getroffen hat.
Wie gehen die damaligen AktivistInnen damit um, dass der „Traum von Revolution“ geplatzt ist? Aber auch: wie ist die aktuelle politische Situation einzuschätzen und was für Einfluss – und Unterstützungsmöglichkeiten gibt es? Auch für Nichtregierungsorganisationen?
Die Regisseurin Petra Hoffmann steht im Anschluss an den Film zu einem Gespräch zur Verfügung.

Mirrors, windows and sliding glass doors! Design the learning environment in an anti-bias manner

Children need materials that act like “mirrors, windows and sliding glass doors” (Rubine Sims Bishop): mirrors in which they can find themselves and the worlds they live in; Windows that allow you to see the diversity of the world; Sliding doors that allow insights into the previously unknown and the change between different worlds. This is particularly important for children who are socially marginalized and are still underrepresented or stereotyped in materials.
In the workshop you will receive a short introduction to the approach of prejudice-conscious education and upbringing© as well as insight into the basic principles of the discrimination-sensitive design of learning environments. The focus of the workshop is on children's books. Exchange rounds enable self- and practical reflection.

Advice café in March

The event offers space for all questions relating to development policy commitment. This can involve financing partnership projects, school campaigns on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals or voluntary services abroad.

Participation in the virtual event is free and registration is also possible at short notice, up until the start of the advice café.

What can you expect?
In the advisory café you have the opportunity to ask your questions about projects in the north and south or individual development policy commitments.

Where can you find support and money for projects or ideas, how can you get involved individually or which programs are particularly attractive for schools and daycare centers?

This event is also designed without a thematic focus. So just come in, ask questions and exchange ideas with us and the community!

We look forward to seeing you!

Development policy state conference – resource justice meets AMAHORO! Baden-Württemberg and Burundi

Municipal specialist conference

Images – Opinions – Perspectives – Creating lively municipal partnerships

This year's municipal expert forum organized by the Association of Baden-Württemberg Cities and the Baden-Württemberg Development Cooperation Foundation focuses on the upcoming local elections and their importance for global partnerships. In light of the increasing polarization of political and social discourse, narratives critical of partnerships are gaining strength. The focus of the municipal expert forum is therefore the question: How can and must global partnerships be argued in the local political context in order to continue to exist in the future?

Speakers:NN

Networking meeting of the partnership groups – Fair Trade Fair

Having difficult conversations in partnerships – what does it take?

After two years of digital networking meetings, we are very pleased to be able to welcome you in person at the Fair Trading trade fair on April 06.04.2024th, 15 from 00:18 p.m. to 00:XNUMX p.m.
Successful global partnership work is, among other things, the result of strong communication. But how often do we reach limits in everyday interaction that prevent us from achieving what would actually be possible? Let alone have difficult conversations that end without misunderstandings. Haven't you ever asked yourself what just happened and been left at a loss? With this event we would like to address important aspects and challenges in order to break new ground together and also address uncomfortable topics in partnership work.

Speakers: Rosa Lopez; Kidist Hailu

Registration: The registration link will be announced shortly

With the admission ticket you have the opportunity to visit the Fair Trade trade fair before the networking meeting.

Feminist development policy – ​​an introduction and reflection

Feminist struggles for greater equality and participation have been part of all societies for many centuries - but the discourses are mostly influenced by “Western” feminism.

The Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) pursues a feminist development policy and presented a strategy in March 2023 to promote the equal participation of all people in social, political and economic life - regardless of gender, gender identity, sexual orientation or skin color , disability or other characteristics. To start the series, two speakers will give an overview of feminist development policy, explain the background and reflect on current developments:

Women and girls in war and crisis areas

Feminist struggles for greater equality and participation have been part of all societies for many centuries - but the discourses are mostly influenced by “Western” feminism. The digital event series “Feminist Development Policy: Women’s and LGBTQI+ Rights Worldwide” examines gender equality from a global perspective, shows examples from countries in the Global South and presents elements of feminist development policy.

During war, all forms of discrimination that already exist in peacetime are exacerbated. This includes the gender-specific devaluation and disadvantage of women and girls. Not only does the humanitarian crisis caused by destruction and displacement in war hit women and girls harder. Sexual violence is also used specifically as a strategic means of warfare. Two speakers will report on the topic.Trigger warning: We would like to point out that the topics of violence, rape and abuse will be addressed during this event.

Speakers:
Marthe Wandou, Founder, Action Locale pour un Développement Participatif et Autogéré (ALDEPA)
Yvonne Sartor, medica mondiale
