International Leaders Study Visit
Youth Work in Germany, Egypt and Tunisia
December 1st - 8th 2012 Germany
February 1st – 8th 2013 Egypt
March 18th – 25st 2013 Tunisia

In the beginning of 2011 the Arabic world changed dramatically. During the so-called “Arab Spring” the people and especially the youth of Tunisia and Egypt overthrew their reigning regimes calling for participation, social justice, economic development and an end to corruption.
The western world observed the changes with astonishment and empathy.
Meanwhile, young people in the western world occupied streets and places in Europe and America in order to protest against social injustice and the overwhelming power of the financial world.
As a result of the Arab Spring, a high interest can be noticed among young Germans and youth organizations in Europe concerning the changes and developments in Arab countries.
Simultaneously, young people in Tunisia and Egypt are looking for new ways of participating in their societies. Connecting both, they will have the possibility to exchange their ideas and ideals.
