Berlin-Jakarta city partnership
From 23 June to 2 July 2014, a delegation headed by the youth and sports sector of Jakarta’s city government will be visiting Berlin with ten students who were chosen from a pool of 335 applicants in Jakarta. This group from our partner city will take a look at various forms of training and university education and will meet young people in Berlin. Among other things, they will be visiting the Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft (college of technology and business), the Oberstufenzentrum Fahrzeugtechnik, (school with a focus on automotive technology), the Staatliche Ballettschule (ballet school), and the young people’s recreational facility Schlesische 27, and will appear at the Bergmannstrasse street fair on June 28.
The Berlin House of Representatives is also preparing to meet a group from Jakarta: members of the Jakarta City Council will be in Berlin from 25 to 29 June 2014 to learn more about the parliament’s role and activities in Berlin and about urban development and transport.
