The freedom from & the freedom to…
in European and Arab Societies


Seminar for
youth leaders & project organizers
from Germany, Poland, Lithuania, Egypt, Tunisia and Jordan
26th November – 04th December, 2021

The Idea
We all yearn for freedom, no matter where we live. Only how can we free ourselves from authoritarian structures? And where are the limits of our freedom, especially under conditions such as the Covid-19 crisis? How can we preserve freedom and human rights in times of severe frictions in our societies? How can we counter political and religious extremism? How can we strengthen civil society? Young activists of civil society (from Germany, Poland, and Lithuania, from Egypt, Tunisia, and Jordan) will share their experiences and find answers to those questions. We will do so in four steps:

Would you like to become active against hate on the internet and learn more about counter-speech? Have you ever heard of the term "silent reader"?
Do you want to understand what a constructive discussion culture in social media can look like and how you can contribute to it?
Then we invite you to our online workshop - which is a live simulation, where you can develop strategies and tactics for dealing with hate speech on the Internet and learn what impact hate speech and discrimination have on our democracies and liberal societies.

After the pandemic break in 2020, we want to invite participants from Germany and Poland to meet face to face again in Oświęcim and Krzyżowa. This year's edition of the "Roads of Freedom" seminar treats the 30th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Good Neighbourship and Friendly Cooperation as an opportunity to take a critical look at this neighborhood and to engage in nurturing it. 

The program is devoted, inter alia, to the planned "Place of Remembrance and Meetings with Poland" (Monument of Poland) in Berlin and the languages ​​of neighboring countries. As always, each point of the program will be an opportunity for a lively exchange of views between participants. Interpreters will be present during the seminar to help participants forget about the language barrier.

The event will only take place if the pandemic situation allows it.
