betzavta - Workshop between the German and Afghan community
co-sponsored by the Adam Institute for Democracy and Peace and Landesarbeitsgemeinschaft für politisch-kulturelle Bildung Sachsen e.V. (pokuBi)
We would like to invite you to a workshop of learning and getting-to-know-you between the German community and the Afghan community in Sachsen, Germany.
The two communities participating in this workshop live alongside each other, sometimes work together and share urban space. Yet few are the opportunities available for a direct dialogue about the nature of their relationship, the trials that they deal with, and their expectations of German democracy.
This workshop will afford you an opportunity for direct connection, learning about one another and examining the ways in which one can improve shared living. The workshop will be taught using “Betzavta – Adam Institute’s facilitation method”, an experiential method that turns conflicts into dilemmas. Based on democratic principles, the method combines engaging, experiential learning that’s rooted in philosophy, sociology, social psychology—and fun. Testimonials on the method can be found here. The number of participants is limited to 20: 10 Afghani participants and 10 German participants.
The meeting will be facilitated/co-facilitated by Dr. Uki Maroshek-Klarman, Executive Director of the Adam Institute and Lutfullah Amiri, Betzavta trainer and administrative employee of pokuBi.
Seminar tops will explore the learning process and acquaintance between the communities
