We are Europe - 2016

83 girls and boys from Germany, the Czech Republic, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Romania, Ukraine, Montenegro, Moldova and Bulgaria took part in the International Danube Youth Camp in Ulm and Neu-Ulm in 2016. This was the fifth time that the event offered young people the opportunity to take part in an international exchange.

The final presentation on the Neu-Ulm stage “Against the Current” addressed numerous aspects of contemporary migration movements: Two persecuted people jump into the Danube and end up in a completely new world under water. But the reception of the underwater inhabitants is anything but warm – the two are blamed for the pollution of the Danube! Nevertheless, they get the right to stay and find their feet in the foreign culture, but how stable is this process of integration? This is exactly the question that around 80 young people from 29 cities and 13 countries dealt with during the camp.
