Students invited to experience the Expedition Week in Mannheim!

from November 13, 2022 to November 19, 2022

From November 13 to 19, 2022, students from the consortium are invited to travel to Mannheim in the Neckarstadt-West district to live the ENGAGE.EU Expedition week "Quarters of Diversity" . A week dedicated to group work to meet the societal and cultural challenges of this dynamic and complex neighborhood of the city.

What's an Expedition Week ENGAGE.EU ?

The ENGAGE.EU Expedition is a one-week international intensive programme. Open to L3 and Master students, this international programme offers students from alliance member universities the opportunity to contribute to real societal transformations. It focuses on the creation of value for society and uses the framework of inno-preneurship as a guiding principle.

Why the Neckarstadt-West district ?

The Neckarstadt-West district is one of six inner city districts of Mannheim. It has an urban character and has the largest number of listed old buildings in the city. Around 22,000 people of over 100 nationalities live there. The district has one of the highest proportions of people with an immigrant background in Mannheim. Due to the still very affordable rents, many students and artists also live there. This leads to continued gentrification of the neighborhood.
