The Minority Secretariat sees it as an important task to inform and advise schoolchildren, teachers, students and other interested parties about the four autochthonous minorities and their challenges in Germany and Europe.
Our offering is not aimed solely at members of the national minorities, but at anyone interested. Particularly in regions where minorities live, schoolchildren should learn about them and find out more about the situations they face in national and European contexts.
For example, issues relating to the autochthonous national minorities and minorities policy in Germany can be discussed here, and school classes, students and other interested parties can learn about the lives, cultures and languages of the individual minorities and experience the added value the national minorities bring to Germany and the benefits afforded by natural bilingualism. Important information about the foundations of minority protection can also be shared.
The subject areas listed below as examples might be explored in the form of a presentation, a lecture or a discussion.
