Social inequality – a project day
The issue of social inequality is omnipresent in our society – noticeable in public discussions about poverty, movement of labor, underpayment and unemployment. Their social status unsettles many young people. Recurring economic crises exacerbate this situation. Social inequality is widely accepted part of our social system and is thus seen as normal. Even the existing participation opportunities cannot address these problems, as they remain (too often) invisible. With our workshop „social inequality” we aim to react to these shortcomings by showing possible roots and manifestations of social inequality and its consequences.
Didactics and methods within this workshop are adapted to the everyday lives of adolescents and young adults. The participants are confronted with their own social situation and learn to place their own experiences in a broader, societal context. Furthermore, we introduce and discuss participation opportunities, which enable young people to actively participate in social processes. Here, we focus on opportunities and limits of self-organization.
