On 2 May 2018, the “GBM Marktplatz“ took place for the first time. The marketplace serves as a platform for exchange between GBM students and social institutions in and around Augsburg. In the Sparkassen Foyer of the City Library. Some students used the opportunity to gather ideas for a project in cooperation with an institution.
Projects are an integral part of our degree program, where students have no limits in terms of creativity.
The GBM student Jakob Rotter, for example, got to know the association “MehrGenerationenTreffpunkt: Firnhaberau / Hammerschmiede” at last year’s market place. In co-operation with this he organized the financing of the publication of the book “Firnhaberauer Geschichten“, a contemporary witness project in which seniors from Firnhaberau tell anecdotes from their childhood and youth.
Following the successful pilot project, the GBM marketplace will also be continued in 2019 and should become an integral part of the program, such as the Social Day.
The GBM Association organizes the marketplace in cooperation with the volunteer center Augsburg, to which a special thanks, as well as the other participating institutions.
