The topics of the projects are diverse: health, environmental protection, IT, culture, artisanal crafts, education, and more. In previous years, participants developed solar-powered bicycles in Windhoek, Namibia and Berlin, Germany. They produced a podcast tackling questions of migration and flight from conflict zones with school children in Greifswald, Germany and Pomerode, Brazil. They created a puppet show on climate change in a team with members from Berlin, Germany and Chittagong, Bangladesh.
The projects focus on sharing experiences within the team and with partner institutions, becoming familiar with new perspectives, and collaborative learning. The ASA Programme and the partner institutions expect participants to actively and constructively work with all team members.
