Are you interested in transformative education? Are you hoping to co-create a better future for all? Are you a professional or student in the field of sustainability, social work, creativity and/or education? Would you like to spent two weeks in Tanzania and Germany exploring solutions for a more sustainable future? We kindly invite you to join us for a collective learning journey taking place in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania and Hamburg, Germany.

Programme Daka Exchange aims to explore collective solutions to the cross-cutting issues surrounding education for sustainability, the Sustainable development goals, climate change and social justice. By bringing together eight participants from each city, we leverage potential for long term collaborations in addressing local issues. Each part contains workshops, expert meetings and cultural events, as well as excursions. In Tanzania we are also planning to visit SANAs projects in the Gongo Forest, University of Dar es Salaam, cultural sites and artistic projects.

Some leading questions: How do we create the future we want? What can we learn from indigenous cultural practices about living in harmony with nature? How can we strengthen shared learning and collaboration for sustainability?

Who? Professionals and learners in the field of education, social work, climate justice and sustainability from Dar es Salaam/Tanzania and Hamburg/Germany with a willingness to learn and work alongside fellows from mixed backgrounds. Aimed at maximizing collaborations through immersive cultural experiences, the program brings together sixteen participants from diverse professional backgrounds. There is no age-limit. Working language is English, though translations will be available.

Participation fee (depending on funding) for participants from Hamburg: 1.450 Euro / for participants from Dar es Salaam: 250 Euro. The fee covers the program costs, travel (up to 800 Euro per person) and CO₂-emission compensation, food and lodging in shared rooms. We appreciate, if you want to contribute more. And, don’t hesitate to apply if you are short on money, we will try to find solutions together.
