What is it about?

These non-traditional German courses try to create a learning environment which fosters relationships between different ethnicities while also shifting into the public sphere. Courses are not held in closed rooms but on the street and in meeting places, thus also enabling interaction with strangers. Building up relationships goes beyond getting to know each other and focuses on similarities.
