Many voluntary initiatives have emerged in recent years to support the arrival of asylum seekers in the city of Nuremberg. The “Forum Willkommenskultur”, which usually takes place in the Historic Town Hall of the City of Nuremberg, was hosted online this year due to the restrictions of the Covid19 pandemic.
After the event kicked off with a welcome address by Nuremberg’s City Mayor Marcus König, the pilot project Match’In and its and key issues were presented, such as the selection of suitable matching criteria. The volunteers of the city were invited to enter into a discussion with the project team and each other in order to contribute their perspective on the project and the issues raised.
