Köbrücke

The aim of this project is to train young people to become positive bridges between Turkey and Germany. Köprü is Turkish and Brücke is German – both words mean bridge. The project name Köbrücke thus connects languages talking about building new bridges. During two youth exchanges we want to create a platform of new relationships, intercultural exchange and friendship between Turkish and German young citizens.
