We thank everyone who participated in our first summer project management academy. The 6 full days filled with project planning, M & E and storytelling content have pushed everyone to their limits, but reading through the participants‘ evaluation, we have achieved our goal and a clear mission to repeat it the next year. We also thank the mayor of Bad Soden, Dr. Blasch, that he has found the time to welcome our workshop participants in Bad Soden.
This summer we give our first 6 day seminar on projectmanagment. It covers the topics: project planning, M&E and Storytelling. It will be held in Bad Soden this time. Contact us for more information if you want to join.
At our latest projectmanagment workshop we were honoured by the participation of Ibrahim Muritala, the founder of Afridat. Soon after the workshop we met in Bonn and decided that Weltweit and Afridat should cooperate on future projects.
We are looking forward to it!

Our vice president Dory Estrade has given an interesting workshop on The Bridging Principles™ together with Helga and Barend, her two colleagues from the Netherlands at the University of Stuttgart on the 16th of October. The Bridging Principles™ are teaching you the essentials of effective communication and conflict-free cooperation not only between people across cultures but also within our daily neighbourhood. The workshop was definetly worth attending as it provided a logical framework and thus replicable success strategies of a communication behaviour that most of us already may subconsciously apply. Now it can become conscious and thereby also a subject of conscious training. We are looking forward to incorporate these Principles in our project management workshops in the future.

Not long ago a new social business came to life in Germany. ONE TEAM is supporting sports projects all over the world because Sports can make a Change.
