Overview of the work with the communities
Global New Generation collaborates first and foremost with schools, which have limited resources and schools supported by moderate contribution from parents and Governments. Irrespective of the level of education a school offers, GNG shall work with Nursery, Primary and High schools colleges and Universities with an aim of targeting youth and children to enunciating certain societal concerns and how the youth can embrace a proactive position to be steadfast in the quest to subdue the underlying issues therein. Children on the other hand will exploit the Global New Generation’s presented opportunities to form a concrete, informed and artistic foundation as bedrock to a firm future global society that coexists in social cohesion and multi-cultural tolerance.
Origins and Mission
The Initiative “New Generation” was created in January 2008 by the visual/ performing artist and mother, Sonja Prinz. In 2009, it became an NGO registered in Berlin. The start of New Generation was inspired by the rising racial, ethnic and cultural conflict in Germany. Because of the existing racial and cultural polarization in, where confrontations of racism and prejudice is part of the children’s , youth’s and even adult’s daily lives. One of the main objectives of New Generation is to raise multi-ethnic children as equal and respected members of the society in Germany and hence become ambassadors of impartiality globally. The foundation is for artistic youth to work with focus on music, dance and theater in an inter-cultural environment to foster racial, ethnic and multi-cultural tolerance
To promote education and information in art and culture, as fundamental forms of social integration among the youth and children.
Global New Generation encompasses various consorted organizations worldwide under the name New Generation with activities inspired and influenced by those of the New Generation Berlin. The consortium operates using a common methodology, under the technical mandate in the area of youth and children, with respect to the different youth affliction dynamics depending on how they affect the different member countries. Specifically Global New Generation offers but not limited to, musical and social Workshops, plays and painting works as activities within visual and performing arts genres. The children engage in thematic plays which deal with subjects such as pollution, conditions of life worldwide, as well as educational promotion of health awareness on cross-cutting issues like HIV/AIDS.
In the context of the workshops, the children and the youth acquire basic knowledge of global diverse cultures and traditions in an attempt to psychologically integrate with their own. Moreover, as the Global New Generation presents an international network, the children will be able to participate in pupils exchange travel with pupils from other countries. As far as local authorities permit, the children will be familiarized with Internet, to be able to socialize and network with other children on the homepage of Global New Generation and to document their personal experiences.
The Global New Generation Organizations can only limit their programs to funds available. As the activities and principles are borrowed from the ideals of the New Generation Berlin’s procedures of operations in terms of funds acquisition as well as program mandate, New Generation Berlin will play a major role in marketing through its website, the interests, and the achieved objectives of the Global New Generation Organizations. By the virtue of autonomy, the consorted organizations reserve the prerogative of soliciting funds for their own projects whether through solicited, non solicited proposals or other authentic means of fund raising, provided that copies of any such transactions are shared will all consortium members through dissemination in soft copy or by any means possible.
If a GNG has just set up, it can use the musical repertoire and experience of other GNG organizations by accessing available music and scripts of the other organizations. Homepages and repertoire are coordinated by the New Generation Berlin.
Every new founded GNG shall be committed and will consent to the harmonized regulations of all Global New Generations and to present every intended and realized project, including the documents of account to the headquarters- New Generation Berlin.
All projects have to be documented in script and illustrations (preferably by filming, photo shooting and the production of an audio play). It will be posted on the homepage demonstration. All rights of pictures, film and audio will be protected legally.
The name of a Global New Generation is always followed by the name of the city or country where it is based. (For instant: Global-New-Generation-Kenya)
Our Goal is a worldwide network of New Generation in form of NGOs, and to be able to safeguard an income for people who campaign actively, all by respecting the GNG regulations of international understanding and equality to all children and youth.
