Why Berlin?

Let Berlin cast its spell

Sense the yesterday, live the today, and shape the tomorrow

Many things that happen in Berlin influence the rest of the world. Many things happening worldwide also influence how we live and work in Berlin. Discover Berlin is like embarking on an adventure through time. Here, you can feel the power of history through the weight of the past and its resilient stance towards the future. Berlin is an innovative and sustainable city that lives in the pulse of time. Berlin is synonymous with diversity and always manages to be surprising. Berlin is the heart of Europe, and one of the most popular cities to travel to that can help improve English language skills.

The Green Berlin

The city is full of green spaces, parks, and gardens, as well as innovative urban gardening trends that extend to your table with a great gastronomic offering for the vegetarian lifestyle. Over 30% of the city’s area is green spaces and woodlands. Berlin has 2,500 parks and gardens, 440,000 trees, and 180 km of waterways. Berlin manages to combine a great metropolis feeling with idyllic green spaces. Now, more than thirty years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, many old industrial heritage buildings, rooftops, and backyards in the former East and West Berlin are remarkable inner-city sites, oases cultivated over the old fractures and ruptures in this once-divided city.

Let's make Berlin the capital of sustainability

The city exudes sustainability in all its forms. Visitors from all over the world are always amazed at how eco-conscious life and food are in Berlin, where you can eat produce straight from community gardens and honey from beekeeping hives implanted on the roofs of berlin. The German capital also has a variety of vegetarian and vegan restaurants, another area where the city is already setting sustainable trends.

Incoming in Berlin

No other city has such a rich panoply of successful businesses as Berlin. The cosmopolitan city attracts many young, creative minds and companies. Here, you can find the highest number of start-ups per inhabitant. The broad start-up scene is very prolific, especially in the services sector. Be part, connect and learn with this creative environment. Let your associates, collaborators, employees, and trainees become part of this success story, and let us show you a sustainable Berlin!

Green Mobilities

Our main goal is to increase integration, cooperation, development, and sustainable awareness between organizations, institutions, companies, skilled workers, and apprentices. We believe that the Erasmus+ programme plays a crucial role in increasing cooperation and fostering sustainable development. Therefore, we are committed to providing an array of incoming services to create awareness and spread sustainable practices. Our focus lies on providing and organizing learning programmes in a mobility context for our partners. These programmes range from traineeships courses, technical visits, apprenticeships, internships, and job shadowing events.

Why we do what we do?

Our focus is on promoting ESD (Education for Sustainable Development) in vocational training (VESD). Therefore, the projects we are involved in are always linked to the creation of programmes and content that increase and disseminate activities promoting sustainable practices. When it comes to mobilities, we are focused on organizing mobility programmes in Berlin that not only have a very low ecological footprint but are also linked to companies and organizations that are an example to follow and to learn from when it comes to sustainability and good practices. Our programmes include accommodation, transfer services, internship and job shadowing programmes, sustainability mentoring and consultancy, as well as workshops to encourage entrepreneurship, employability, and the implementation of a greener lifestyle in both professional and personal life.

How do we foster sustainability?

We organize and provide the following services:

  • We provide technical visits and job-shadowing events, apprenticeships, internships, seminars, and workshops fostering Education for Sustainable Development (ESD).
  • We develop internship programmes and search for institutions that fit participants’ backgrounds, skills, and learning outcomes.

  • Regular feedback on the progress of mobilities, projects, and internships.
  • Regular contact with company tutors for feedback and mediation.
  • We provide official documentation to meet programme requirements for fundings and evaluations: learning agreements, certificates, and assessments.
