Strategic partners

Collaboration with partners from the realms of sport and cultural education

weltwärts Exchange Projects specifically seeks to attract funding applicants from the worlds of sport and cultural education. The aim is to reach target groups that have previously had little or no exposure to development issues. To this end, weltwärts Exchange Projects has joined forces with Deutsche Sportjugend (dsj) im Deutschen Olympischen Sportbund (DOSB) and Bundesvereinigung Kultureller Kinder- und Jugendbildung (BKJ) in a pilot phase scheduled to run until December 2020.

Strategic partners’ tasks

Deutsche Sportjugend (dsj) im DOSB (German youth sports association) and Bundesvereinigung Kulturelle Kinder- und Jugendbildung (federal association for child and youth cultural education, bkj)

  • provide expertise on how to combine sports or cultural education projects with development issues and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and
  • run special training programmes for those responsible for teaching others how to conduct the youth exchange projects.
