The way we found out the YES!-Project exists is very interesting. Two different teachers at the Windeck-Gymnasium in Bühl said something about a „politic project“ before I was asked by Mr Stiborsky if I am interested in joining this competition. I said YES! So the next two days I was searching for some competent and clever teammates. This is how our team, consisting of Amira, Carina, Lily-Marie, Niklas, Rebecca, Simon, came together. As it came to choose the topic we are interested in, we quickly decided to go with the subject of how to fight child poverty and how children and young adults can be supported.
First, because we are very shocked that in such a rich country like Germany every fifth child lives in poverty or in danger of poverty.
Secondly, because there is still some time till we can vote but we want to engage ourselves by now and come up with ideas for the changes we want to see in Germany. The YES!-Project gives us the ability to compete with our thoughts and to engage ourselves, and we are pleased about that.
