SÜDNORDFUNK “LISTEN, CONNECT, ACT!”

The “Listen, Connect, Act!” project Südnordfunk promotes multi-perspective perspectives on development policy issues, among the radio editors and young adults involved, as well as among the listeners.

An interested public and multipliers of development policy education work can access a growing range of development policy audio contributions digitally on demand. Connect: Several radio editorial teams from independent radio stations from Baden-Württemberg and beyond are networking to strengthen their development and south-north policy content with the long-term goal of regular, jointly created development policy reports. Magazine show Südnordfunk. Act: The “Listen, Connect, Act!” project supports young adults in media-activist communication on development policy content. It strengthens their media skills through self-organized, partly guided learning processes in a transcultural environment.

PRACTICE UNDERSTANDING EACH OTHER – KISWAHILI LANGUAGE COURSE IN UNTERMARCHTAL

Languages ​​are an important key to building and maintaining partnerships and treating the other person respectfully and “on an equal footing”. African languages ​​in particular are not learned much in Germany, as it is still the former “colonial languages” – especially English, Spanish, French – that dominate. Since language not only enables communicative understanding, but also conveys a lot about basic cultural assumptions and living environments, learning it is a step towards greater partnership. In order to intensify the cooperation between the Tanzanian and German Sisters of Mercy of St. Vincent de Paul in Untermarchtal e.V., we are conducting a 3-day compact Kiswahili language course in Untermarchtal.

SLIPPERS - A YOUTH BROCHURE ON RACISM AND INEQUALITY

Bridging Gaps e.V. is a young association that aims to bring up everyday racism. The focus of the association's work is on various forms of discrimination and inequality as global challenges. The project is aimed at 20 young adults who have returned from a stay in a country in the Global South and would like to share their experiences and knowledge with the wider public. In the project they will delve deeper into the theories of critical whiteness and “critical race theory”. The aim of the project is to publish a brochure that provides basic knowledge on these topics and contains helpful food for thought. The project forms the thematic part of the multiplier training within our association, which also consists of an educational, group dynamic and practical part.

EXCHANGE WITH THE PARTNER SCHOOL IN BURKINA FASO

The Feyelschule from Ebnet and the Annexe/ENEP school from Gaoua in Burkina Faso have maintained a partnership since 2014. In order to give Freiburg students a vivid picture of Africa, free of prejudices and clichés, Mr. Evariste Sib, the teacher responsible for the partnership, will travel to Freiburg in October 2019. As part of his stay in Freiburg, he will take part in school lessons at the Feyelschule and report to teachers, parents and children about everyday life in Burkina Faso. In exchange with the teachers from the Feyelschule and the Freiburg University of Education, the topic of reading promotion and the Mathelino program, an early support program in mathematics, are also discussed. The aim of the project is an intercultural exchange of ideas and activities in school pedagogy, which should lead to more tolerance and openness.

TRAVELING EXHIBITION ON THE THEME “GOOD LIFE FOR ALL”

As a continuation of the successfully implemented project “In Search of the Good Life – an interactive educational course within the framework of a hemp labyrinth”, a mobile learning location is being created that can also be used in the long term. For this purpose, the content and pedagogical concept of the educational course will be transferred to a traveling exhibition. In this way, the topic of “a good life for all” can continue to be made tangible and tangible for different target and age groups, primarily in rural areas. The traveling exhibition as a mobile learning location can be used in a variety of ways and flexibly. In addition, the respective learning location is adapted to the different circumstances and requirements and linked to innovative pedagogical approaches to transformative education and starting points for concrete practical implementation. By involving actors in local change projects, such as Permaculture Dreisamtal, in addition to engaging various target groups with the topic, the networking of committed people from the one world, environmental and sustainability areas is promoted and further expanded in a future-proof manner.

AWARENESS RAISING OF GERMAN COLONIAL HISTORY IN NAMIBIA

Invitation of a trombone choir of 8 people from the black Lutheran church in Namibia, mostly descendants of the Nama and Herero who suffered under German colonial rule. Through family encounters and public events for all Baden-Württemberg residents in parishes in Markgräflerland and Hochrhein, awareness of colonial history is to be raised. Our development awareness-raising supports the state government's efforts to come to terms with the German colonial era in Namibia. The guests from Namibia should experience community and signs of reconciliation. This experience will radiate into church life in Namibia and promote coexistence between the various ethnic groups, especially those of German descent.

CELEBRATING SUSTAINABILITY: THE 2030 AGENDA AT A MUNICIPAL CITY FESTIVAL

Education for sustainable development should reach the broadest sections of the population and make a lasting contribution to achieving the sustainability goals. But many people have not yet been reached by development policy offers. The aim of the project is therefore to develop innovative educational methods for a city festival in a participatory manner with local initiatives and the city organizing committee. These are intended to inform city festival visitors about topics of the 2030 Agenda in an entertaining and low-threshold way using the method of casual learning “in passing” and to motivate them to take their own action. In the spirit of the 2030 Agenda, sustainability should be addressed comprehensively in all dimensions.

DISTRICT RADIO FROM “SQUARE”

Sinteza women in Freiburg should be empowered to design their own programs and continue the project independently. They should learn all the skills of making radio. This includes moderating a program, uploading the content to the Radio Dreyeckland (RDL) website and distributing the content via social networks, conducting an interview as well as operating a recording device and studio technology. At the same time, of course, they should be given the opportunity to speak publicly about their concerns, about discrimination and antigypsyism in Freiburg and the region. Last but not least, a public event should be organized. The primary task of free radio is to give a voice to those who would otherwise remain unheard.

CITIZEN DIALOGUES COMMON GOOD ECONOMY – A PATH TO ACHIEVE THE SDGS

The project promotes the global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through the dissemination of the Common Good Economy (GWÖ). Public citizen dialogues create awareness of which aspects of the economic system require transformation in order to correspond to sustainable development. The GWÖ shows theoretical and practical solutions. Following on from this, planning and subsequent implementation are ensured through a coaching offer. The aim is for participants to make more responsible decisions in terms of development policy in their respective roles and to be able to take part in a discourse about a sustainable economic system. This will promote the systematic implementation of sustainable economic practices.

PEACE THREAD PEACE NETWORK. NON-VIOLENTLY EFFECTIVE IN THE WORLD.

In Gandhi's 150th anniversary year, people in and around Freiburg are beginning to spin their own threads of peace. These are created as actual threads made from local raw materials such as sheep's wool or flax and as an individual message of peace: “My/our contribution to peace in the world!”. On World Peace Day 2020, the threads will be publicly linked into a symbolic peace network. The peace messages are brought together into a joint declaration. During the “creating process”, participants are encouraged to engage in dialogue and develop constructive approaches to action through: impulses in the form of texts and questions, exchange and networking meetings, training for non-violent action and workshops on textile production and its ecological and social impacts.
