Under the slogan, ”Youth, Health and Inclusion — common topics for different countries“, this year’s exchange of specialists enabled professionals from various German and South African organisations to participate.
The aim of the programme was to introduce German experts to South African organisations and their employees. They also had the opportunity to meet other people who worked with young people, either in healthcare, or in inclusive education.
By visiting various projects and attending seminars which involved working in small groups, the German and South African colleagues learned about the context and conditions in which their counterparts worked. At the end of the programme, the participants were able to draw up opportunities for future collaborations or partnerships.
