Murat in Red City Hall

Last year, Berlin was named the “European Volunteer Capital 2021”. Bürgerstiftung Berlin took this award as an opportunity to draw more attention to volunteering.

Through an exhibition, the voluntary work in the field of education and overall social inclusion is to be honoured as a strong integrative force and the impressive diversity of participation is to be presented.

Our Duke participant Murat Kizilgül was also portrayed for this exhibition. Just have a look for yourself:!

Yesterday, 10 January 2022, the exhibition “Giving face and voice to voluntary work” opened in the Red City Hall.

The exhibition shows the diversity of Berliners’ commitment on panels. In interviews and pictures in the exhibition, 32 people tell their personal stories of volunteering on behalf of all those involved in the capital.  The volunteers’ fields of activity range from environmental protection to language support, from natural sciences and sports to inclusion work, culture and music.

Everyone is cordially invited to view the wonderful stories on site.
The exhibition “Giving Volunteering a Face and a Voice” is open from
11 January 2022 until 18 February 2022 in the
Rotes Rathaus, Rathausstraße 15, 10178 Berlin,
Monday to Friday from 9.00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m.
with free admission.
