„Crossing barriers-striving for harmony“ is a YCBS project in the frame of which students cross barriers during one week in Berlin using microphone. The youngsters interview people from different cultural and professional backgrounds, living in various districts. The project participants themselves have interesting backgrounds.

(English, German)

In addition to two 4-day youth assemblies focused on radio seminars (one in Germany, and one in the Czech Republic) and the three regional radio workshops, there are also campaigns which have been set up for the students to do research about the history, the culture, the people, nature and the environment surrounding the Elbe in an effort to collect material and stories and put common issues on our agenda.ists and YCBS. The project will last for a year. 
Ecological issues are linked to social and cultural issues. This offers the opportunity to integrate the project into different subjects and to use the expertise of teachers. Teachers may come from different disciplines (e.g. Geography, Biology, Social Studies, Czech language, and German language).
