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.

With this in mind, we invite you to participate in a joint photography project launched by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH and Bundesnetzwerk Bürgerschaftliches Engagement (National Network for Civil Society, BBE).
