FIELDS OF WORK
WHY WE WORK
We believe in the importance and fundamental imperative of equal opportunities for all, independent from national, social or personal backgrounds. We work towards open and peaceful societies in Thuringia, Germany, Europe and beyond that promote a diversity of thought, human rights and civic engagement.
To promote these values, CGE Erfurt e.V. provides a variety of educational opportunities and programs that bring together young people, adults and experts from across Europe to share and discuss their experiences and opinions. Doing so, it is our aim to encourage a mutual understanding that transcends national borders, social backgrounds and personal affiliations and work towards a shared identity as engaged citizens of Europe and the world at large.
The implementation goes through diverse learning opportunities like training courses, seminars, workshops, study visits, youth exchanges, work camps, volunteer services, symposia, conferences, forums and other formats with local, regional, national, European and other international partners on local, regional, national, European and international level through non-formal education.
Meet the international team driving our projects. Our team is united in diversity, bringing together different academic, professional and national contexts within one organisation.
