A total of 60 participants from more than 11 countries (including Spain, South Korea, the Netherlands, Finland, Slovakia, Italy, Ireland, Australia, Brazil and Vietnam) used the opportunity to take part in seminars, workshops, excursions and role plays led by teachers from different parts of the world.

The Berlin International Week was launched in 2019 with the aim of integrating sustainability and responsibility aspects more strongly into the curriculum of degree programmes. It opens up multidisciplinary perspectives on the topics of sustainability and responsibility. Each year, the project week carries a new focus. The approach is always interdisciplinary and international.
