In the ethnocultural quest, children aged 7-13 years took part, among whom there were participants of the children's ethno-cultural club "Planeta", Krasnodar. The event included members of ethno-cultural clubs, meeting centers of the RN of the Krasnodar Territory, as well as all those who show great interest in the German language and culture of Russian Germans.
At the start, the children were divided into teams, each of which received their "Kinderland" route map. The participants passed the stations one after another, where they participated in the format of the quests-games, portraiting the roles of singers, doctors, police officers or football players.
Therefore, the participants of the quest could learn interesting facts about the history and culture of Russian Germans, get acquainted with traditional holidays, and improve their level of knowledge of the German language.
All the participants of the quest received the "Schrumdirum" magazine as a gift, and the winners and prize-winners were also awarded with medals.
According to the organizers and participants of the event, the format of the quest game allowed the kids to get acquainted with the culture and history of their ancestors, as well as learning German in an entertaining, creative and very interesting way.
All those present expressed the hope that this event will become an annual tradition of the Cultural and Business Center of Russian Germans in Kaliningrad.
"This is a very interesting event, this is a quest where you have to fulfill your tasks very quickly and you are studying the history of your people in parallel.This is very important for me because my grandmother and grandfather are Russian Germans and German culture is an integral element of my family! In the district I will carry out similar projects, I will take part in it with pleasure! Thank you for the gift of the sparkling event to you again!"
- Kanakov Maxim, Chairman of the Krasnodar regional public youth organization "Friendship".
In turn, I want to thank the organizers for the work done, you're just super!
I also took part in the round table on the development of projects on healthy lifestyle with Valentin Yavorsky. We talked about proper nutrition, healthy foods, and how parents can bring up the culture of HLS in their children. This topic is essential for me, and I plunged into it with my head. Thanks to the project, I received feedback from various experts, these tips will help me.
Also during the week representatives of European ethnic minorities participated in a seminar dedicated to the development of projects, the main goal of which was the training of activists to promote cultural and linguistic diversity in Europe. The participants received the practical and theoretical knowledge necessary for the successful implementation of the project, the bulk of which starts already in early May.
Until early August, young activists will carry out their tasks, meeting with representatives of both minorities and the majority. The tools developed at the workshop helped participants quickly master the necessary base and test it during the first field mission.
Young leaders and activists of the membership organizations also summed up the civil initiative aimed at protecting the rights of minorities and multilingualism in Europe.
