Our world is in transformation. Increasingly, changes in remote regions of the world are affecting daily life in Germany and Europe. Consciously or unconsciously, we feel it every day. People are on the move. Some are arriving at new places, while others are leaving a familiar environment. What connects them all is that in the course of their ‘departures and arrivals’, they often benefit from civic engagement or help others themselves. This commitment is the foundation for meeting the challenges posed by global transformation and, at the same time, seizing the associated opportunities that will allow future generations to live together in harmony.

On 19 April 2018 the yearlong exhibition “Vom Weggehen und Ankommen” will be opened in Berlin’s GIZ Representation. You are invited to join the vernissage on this evening full of impressions and dialogue. You can find the official invitation with more information here – feel free to share. Unfortunately, the invitation is only available in German.

The ten series which have been awarded by the jury and will be presented in the exhibition can be found under “Prämierte Fotoserien”.

The deadline has expired on December 20 2017. You can find all photo series which have been sent in under “Meine Geschichte”.
