Über den Tellerrand kochen

Description:

Über den Tellerrand kochen is creating a new togetherness among refugees and locals and achieving long-lasting integration in a process that involves people from all corners of society participating on their own initiative. As a pilot project, Über den Tellerrand inspires cross-cultural exchange  and encounters at the groundlevel among cultures and supports an open and tolerant society. By using the topic of food as one of the most fundamental means for cultural exchange, we reach out to both refugees and the local community, putting the abstract term “asylum” into a new, more positive perspective; we create awareness for the diversity and cultural richness of our fellow human beings on an equal footing, giving way to valuable encounters with one another.
