Workshop 4: Arrive and participate in the village
“Migration” into the village describes not only the influx of people outside of Germany, but also the move from the city to the countryside. Integration means the integration of all villagers across generations and cultures.
How do long-time residents and newcomers experience the village? Does coexistence work differently in the country than in the city? How important is it to know the neighborhood in rural areas? Do I need help from the community in the village? How can I break down barriers and how can I communicate my individual needs?
