The 2024 UNESCO Kulturweit Tandem Exchange Program

The UNESCO Kulturweit Tandem Exchange Program is a unique international exchange program. The organization‘s goal is to enhance mutual understanding and intercultural dialogue between countries in the European Union, other European countries, and other regions around the world.

The new UNESCO Kulturweit Tandem Exchange Program welcomes people from African countries and Germany to explore the history of colonialism from various perspectives and to engage with our postcolonial present. You would develop projects in the fields of culture, education, and sustainability that you can implement together in Germany.


Through the Kulturweit Tandem project, you are creating a contribution to a world without discrimination. You would attain international experience, let your creativity run free during the project phase, and build a network that you can stay involved with for a long time to come.
