On 20 November, the Lawaetz Stiftung organized a multiplier event to engage local stakeholders working with youths at risk of social exclusion. District representatives, youth workers and other practitioners explored the relevance and adaptability of the CIVACT methods for their work in the Hamburger districts of Wandsbek, Altona and Harburg.
The participants expressed a lot of excitement about the methods and seemed enthusiastic to start working with them as soon as possible. Many thanks to my colleagues in Hamburg for their coordination and preparation before, during and after! I look forward to hearing from the participants about their experiences with the methods on the ground in their local contexts in a few months.
