Under the heading of ‘initiate.participate.change.’, we will present options for getting active and examples for initiatives in civil society and politics taken by Germany-Alumni.

Our #MissionResponsible competition invited Germany-Alumni to showcase their commitment to better cooperation and a more sustainable future on the Alumniportal.
