NaturKultur is an youth association that is founded in North-West Germany and now exists in Bremen, Wiefelstede - Oldenburg and Osterholz-Scharmbeck. The name Natur(nature) represents the physical world including all living things as well as the land and the oceans*. Kultur(culture) is the totality of socially transmitted behavior patterns, arts, beliefs, institutions, and all other products of human work and thought**. Therefore, we as organization want to be the synergy between these two terms and harmonize the living welfare on this planet.
The main objectives of the organization are:
- To create and provide international mobilities for young people in Germany. To encourage and support young people to go on international mobilities, but also other organizations and NGOs to host international young people or to send their members abroad.
- To provide opportunities for young people that will make them more civically engaged in our local societies.
- To create community based projects and activities where the young people are addressing issues that are relevant in our local societies.
- To share and promote interculturalism, tolerance, diversity and understanding among the different cultures in Europe but also in our local society.
