ScoutingTrain 2014

@ VOL 1 ON NOV 24, 2015

As part of an international Team of scouts, Alexander Schmidt helped creating a project in which 172 people from 14 different nations travelled the Transsiberian railway together.

The project succeeded, even despite the political situations in some of the participating countries and did a great deal in advancing international friendship and understanding.

But not only did they have a tour of unforgettable experiences that forged new friendships, connections and networks. They also managed in several workshops to educate a few dozens of the participants in projectmanagement related skills, enabling them to use the network as a basis for plans of further projects.

Unity in Diversity?

@ VOL 32 ON FEB 06, 2017

As a young EU citizen who is convinced that there can only be a European solution to our present and future (political) challenges, Verena Riedmiller feels that Europeans need to stand up now for a more democratic Europe. A Europe, in which the voices of its diverse citizens are heard, a Europe, which does not only preach values but brings them to life.

Her proposal for such a Europe comes in the form of the NGO cube. Your take on Europe. Cube. educates, engages and empowers young people in Europe to voice their ideas for a Europe of the future towards the European Commission.

The EU is not a set political reality, each and every one of us can raise their voice and shape our political future!

#FreeInterrail: Saving Europe by travelling

@ VOL 32 ON FEB 06, 2017

Imagine yourself turning 18 and finding a personalised letter from the European Union in your mailbox. In it: a voucher to travel Europe. Your life will change! Europe is facing many problems - a lot of them have to do with people not knowing or understanding each other.

Imagine what a Europe we could build together, if all future generations were enabled to explore and experience European cultural diversity and beauty first-hand. #FreeInterrail advocates for just that.

In this presentation Vincent-Immanuel Herr invites us to join the movement and make sure that all EU youth are empowered to become Europeans out of experience.

Finding My Cultural Voice in Comics

@ VOL 16 ON JUN 29, 2017

By day Rudy Vasquez is the mild mannered Marketing and Communications Manager for El Paso’s Downtown Management District (DMD)…but by night Rudy pursues his amazing passion for comic animation artistry.

Rudy has worked for independent comic book publishers as a work-for-hire sequential artist for years, but has not published any creator owned work. Now, the artist is laying the foundation for a creator owned project that is an expression of his own voice. In this journey, he has discovered a culturally rich context that reflects life on the border more so, than life in a completely make believe world.
