Greetings from Lafayette, California! Welcome to the Transatlantic Youth Future Council – here at Stanley Middle School!
How will the world look like in 2030? How can we contribute to make it a green, safe, fair and peaceful planet? We had a series of sessions here in our school, with Thomas Röhlinger, who is not only Founder of Radijojo but also one of the Global Experts of UN Alliance of Civilizations, member of the Advisory Board of the Clobal Education Conference and part of the UNESCO/UN Alliance of Civilizations network for Media and Information Literacy and Intercultural Dialogue. So, we have a good postman for our ideas! We came up with tons of good proposals: From new traffic systems to sustainable management of trees to the support for the developing world – we had it all in. (Here, you find some snapshots of only a part of the sessions.)
These Transatlantic Youth Future Council sessions in Lafayette are our contribution to the UN Sustainable Development Goals. And we are greatly looking forward to what our new German peers think about our ideas, and what their suggestions may be.
So: Join us to create a new unique Transatlantic collaboration! Stay tuned – and raise your voice!
The students from Lafayette, California.
Many thanks to our fantastic teacher Claudia Windfuhr – and to the American Association of Teachers of German that brought us all together!
