The NRW Magazine
The state of North Rhein Westphalia (Nordrhein Westfalen), with its over 17.9 million inhabitants, is the most populous state of Germany. It is very multicultural and has the largest number of Africans in Germany. These Africans are very dynamic and mostly operate within associations centred around their countries of origins.
Normally, throughout the year, one would see a lot of events in different cities within the state (Essen, Dortmund, Duisburg, Cologne, Wuppertal, Aachen, Düsseldorf, just to name a few). But with the advent and persistence of the Covid 10 virus since March 2020, a new normal was established where meetings and interaction have been drastically reduced.
Through this project we want to continue strengthening the social cohesion of Africans in the state during these COVID 19 and post COVID 19 times. An important component of the project is its conceptual reciprocity in which we want to promote mutual cross-generational learning between youths and adults. For example, parents can acquire more competence in electronic media through younger people, while young people learn societal values and life experience.
With six issues of the NRW Magazine planned, we hope to engage the African community in NRW and provide them with targeted information which will help improve their quality of life here.
