perspektywa - From a border area to an area of meeting

for new encounters
In the area between The Randow and The Oder, it is truly becoming evident just how much the subject of European integration means to people. Countless new opportunities open up, but it is also clear to see that there are difficult processes of change and uncertainty about how to deal effectively with situations arising. Together with you we examine how we can use the opportunities and master the challenges presented, utilising our pilot project perspektywa. Foremost in all considerations are your unique concerns and the democratic shaping of your village and the region.

for the region, for us
Do you want to make a contribution to living together in your community, Are you already active in your neighborhood, or a club, and you have new ideas? Then contact us, our project team will accompany and support you in developing and implementing new impulses to forge a common everyday life for German and Polish citizens. Check out our programmes on site and follow us on Youtube, Twitter or Facebook!

for growing together
So many ways of getting together! Welcoming activities and discussions, civic meetings and round tables, workshops, civil dialogues or open discussions. The many and varied challenges and perspectives can be tackled together as we actively strengthen the co-existence of Polish and German residents of the districts in Löcknitz-Penkun, Vorpommern-Greifswald (Mecklenburg-Western Pommerania) and Gartz (Oder) in Uckermark (Brandenburg).

for more public participation
Together with you in your town or village, we will actively look for ways to improve the  co-existence of German and Polish residents in tangible ways. Then we will develop practical projects and activities with you. We will advise you in seeking the necessary funds and share our experience and contacts from a broad network. This will help you to get involved in our region with the minimum possible fuss.
With its previous project, named perspektywa - Acting against anti-Polish resentment, the RAA made the people in Mecklenburg-Western Pommerania aware of derogatory stereotypes and perceptions concerning Poland and her citizens. Within this context, the RAA has developed various educational opportunities and information materials about the cause, the ways and functions of the hostility to Poland, which still can be ordered free of charge at the RAA.
