"When we worked together, I found

that we are closer in thought,

as we might suspect.”

Tim Basler from Waldshut, participant

What is close to my heart in my work is youth work. I organize youth meetings at home and abroad with great enthusiasm. Young adults from all Danube countries get to know each other, experience a fulfilled and fulfilling time and develop projects together, such as a large presentation at the Danube Youth Camp as part of the International Danube Festival in Ulm/Neu-Ulm. Friendships made here are important for individual biographies and even more important for cohesion in a common Europe. We experience this Europe at the youth encounters in a very personal, very honest and open way.”

Dr. Swantje Volkmann
