Globalization affects us all. Whether it is the consequences of climate change or orange juice from Brazil, cocoa from Africa, world hunger or the reasons that cause one to flee a home country: global relationships must be understood and taught. These issues are complicated and difficult to grasp in understanding local responsibilities for global relationships.
Youth projects between countries of the Global North and Global South help to make these topics more tangible and to talk about them together. In these exchange programs, understanding and empathy can be learnt and diverse subject matters worked on together. This enables the young participants to recognize their responsibility as world citizens and actively take responsibility for the global future.
To accommodate everyone, we need to build modern, sustainable cities. For all of us to survive and prosper, we need new, intelligent urban planning that creates safe, affordable and resilient cities with green and culturally inspiring living conditions.
Within the project time of 2 years, EURIST and FABIO will work together with students mainly from the Sachsenwaldschule Gymnasium Reinbek and from Secondary Schools in Jinja on developing an understanding of the connection between mobility and livability in communities and cities. Through various activities and interactions, both online and during the exchange visits, students will gain awareness about each others social and mobility cultures and will collectively develop idea and perspectives for future mobility trends in their cities.

Ready to go – finally. Having been postponed due to the pandemic the exchange project MOTIVATION MOBILITY 2021/2023 is now gaining momentum with students from Reinbek, Wentorf and Jinja taking part.
I am extremely delighted that young people from different countries and continents are involved in an exchange that focuses on questions regarding our mutual responsibility for the future of our world. There have been and will be contacts on a personal level to promote understanding for the living conditions of the respective cultures.
The topic sustainable cities and settlements which is in the focus of this collaboration may open up perspectives for our communities.
Besides, the co-operation of the students highlights that in a world that increasingly becomes a global village every person – no matter where they live – should have equal social, cultural and economic possibilities.
I wish good luck for everyone taking part in the project and hope for valuable and interesting encounters. May all the participants develop a perspective for the future and may they willingly accept the responsibilities they have in the process of shaping the future.
I would like to thank the people who have initiated and organized this project.
GREETINGS FROM THE PRINCIPAL GYMNASIUM WENTORF
I am very pleased that our students have entered into an inter- cultural exchange with representatives of a school in Uganda and are specifically dealing with questions of sustainable development. The importance of the topic of mobility and development on the African continent thus clearly links questions that can only be gleaned to a limited extent from textbooks. Rather, it is the personal encounters and the practical questions of feasibility on site that are supported by this work and create learning opportunities from which the young people from both countries will benefit for a long time.
