Welcome to Berlin – 2nd Regional Final 2018

It was quite exciting for us to come to Berlin for the first ever YES! regional final in our new region. Hosted by the Leibniz Association, we welcomed six teams to present their solutions for topics that researchers from DIW Berlin and ESMT had provided for us.

Meat and greet – Elsa-Brandström-Gymnasium Oberhausen

The experience at the kick-off meeting at the RWI has made us even more determined to find a way to reduce meat consumption. We all have our own personal reasons for participating in the project but there is also a collective motivation that drives all of us: our culture of meat consumption needs to change and quickly.

Kick Off Meeting: Our exciting trip to Mannheim – Fritz-Erler-School Pforzheim II

How exciting! After some weeks of preparation our adventure with YES! finally started. On 16 March 2018, we took the train from Pforzheim to Mannheim to attend our kick-off meeting at the Center for European Economic Research (ZEW).Thanks to our supportive school administration we were exempt from school that day. This was great of course! On the train we took the opportunity to exchange our thoughts about our topic "How to Combat Child Poverty- and How can Children and Adolescents be Best Supported".

Multikulti at Burgdorf – BBS Burgdorf Team II

We are the YES! team of the grammar school for economics in Burgdorf and newcomers at the YES! project. The topic that we have chosen is the “Acceptance of Refugees in the Local Environment”.

Make Nudges Great Again – Heinrich-Heine-Schule Heikendorf

We are the group from Heikendorf taking part in “Young Economic Summit” to develop our future because the future is our responsibility and we want to create it actively. YES is our chance to give our often overheard voices depth and the needed volume.

„Mit Hartz IV hat jeder das, was er zum Leben braucht.“ – Windeck-Gymnasium Bühl

„Mit Hartz IV hat jeder das, was er zum Leben braucht.“ When we first heard about this statement by Jens Spahn, a German parliament member and Minister for health, we were not amused, because it seems to be many people’s opinion on poverty. At the same time, it motivated us, even more, to take part in YES and find ways to really give everybody what is necessary to live a human-worth life.
