Wichtige Informationen!!!

Hallo zusammen!

Das Team der Eurowerkstatt ist gerade dabei, unser neues Büro in der Löbstedter Str. 17 in Jena zu beziehen. 

Im Moment sind wir sehr mit dem Umzug beschäftigt, daher tut es uns sehr leid, dass wir uns nicht sofort bei Ihnen melden können! 

Wenn Sie eine dringende Nachricht haben, können Sie uns natürlich auch gerne auf unserem Handy erreichen: Tel: (0049) 01522 5154325

Wir werden Sie auf dem Laufenden halten! 

Changes are coming!

Das bekannte “Casa Loca”, der Gemeinschaftsraum für Freiwillige, wird renoviert. Er wird ab dem 1. Mai das neue Büro der Eurowerkstatt sein. Aber nur weil der Gemeinschaftsraum ein neues Büro sein wird, heißt das nicht, dass die Freiwilligen sich dort nicht aufhalten können!

The office will still offer a place for volunteers to gather, watch movies on the beamer, and so forth. There is also a large garden, and the weather is known to improve. Keep an eye on our social media for further updates as the remodeling continues.

Green Growth for Europe

The volunteers have created their own small project called “Green Growth for Europe” and applied for EU funding.

The idea behind the project is to make Jena just a little greener than it is. They will be walking around Jena and its surroundings collecting trash while asking the locals of Jena if they would like to join. We like cultural exchange, and, of course, the project is open to everyone.

They will be organizing a flea market this summer where people can sell their own stuff and much more exciting stuff, so stay tuned for more updates!

Weekend trip to Leipzig

From 29 to 31 October 2021, the volunteers went on a weekend trip to Leipzig to get to know a new city in Germany.

The trip included various stops in Leipzig neighbourhoods. They went to Connewitz, a neighbourhood in Leipzig known for its diversity. The volunteers explored Conne Island, an alternative youth cultural centre in Connewitz, and were fascinated by its unique appearance.

They also visited the Lindenau district and took a short walk along the beautiful canal.

However, the volunteers not only explored the outskirts of Leipzig, but also the city centre, where they learned about the city's history and saw historical sites.

The volunteers found the city attractive and said it was worth a visit. They will definitely come back in the future.

Meeting in Berlin

From 22 to 24 May, a conference took place in Berlin at the invitation of SPD member of parliament Christoph Matschie. It was aimed at politically interested people from Thuringia. Volunteers from the EuroWerkstatt Jena e.V. and members of the youth political organisation "Jusos Thüringen" took part in the meeting.

The programme of the trip included:

1) German Bundestag (Reichstag building)

2) Visit to the Russian Embassy in Berlin

3) Guided tour of the German-Russian Museum in Berlin-Karlshorst (site of the surrender of the Wehrmacht in 1945).

4) Führung in der Gedenkstätte und Museum “KZ und Speziallager Sachsenhausen”

5) Visit of the exhibition EXPERIENCE EUROPE in the European House

6) Discussion with MPs in the Paul Löbe House

The trip was very engaging. There was a lot of useful and important information about the political system of Germany and Europe in general. I hope that such a trip will be repeated.
