About the Project

At this point, about 26.000 asylum seekers, who are fleeing from war, terror, political prosecution or unacceptable living conditions are living in the state of Saxony.

About 4.500 of these are housed in Dresden (as of February 2017).

After the first few steps, like language and integration courses, are taken the question "What next?" arises. With RefLAct, we want to contribute a long term integration offer in Dresden.

During the course of five weekend-workshops, out participants will learn how to organise their own environmental education project. On each weekend we will focus on one environmentally relevant topic and teach methodical knowledge for working with children and teenagers.

The workshops commence on Friday 3:00 PM and end on Sunday 5:00 PM.

What happens after the workshops?

After attending a workshop you will get the opportunity to put the new knowledge into practice. In small teams you will organise your own environmental education project in cooperation with a kindergarten, school or youth centre. Or maybe you will film an educational video? You decide. The project manager will offer you support during that time.

In a follow-up meeting, each group will present their project to the group.

If you complete one workshop and create your own environmental education project, you will receive a participation certificate.

If you complete at least four out of the five workshops and create your own environmental education project you will receive the certificate "Certified Environmental Educationer" from BUND Dresden.


Where do the workshops run?

All five workshops are run in Dresden. Depending on the topic we will go on excursions to places of interest around Dresden and Lusatia (eastern Saxony).


How much is it?

The workshops are free for all participants. We also cover for meals and drinks.

Travel costs from places outside of Dresden and accomodation costs can not be covered.
