Why it is important

So as to become a functioning part of a self-reflective social community, a base of common knowledge is indispensable. Consequently, every human being, who seeks education, should have the fundamental right to receive it. To make different characters explore the world and its cultural differences in group and workshop based programmes is our main goal. The potential, interest and curiosity of participants shall not be hindered, but enhanced with regards to different possibilities. Education and knowledge is common property.
