Logo Bundesforum Familie

[7. 12. 2015] About 60 participants visited the annual assembly of the Bundesforum Familie (National Network Family). The most important items on the agenda were the summary of the discussions of the past topic "family and inclusion" as well as the decision on the next topic for the time period 2016-2017.

 

The participants from the member organisations of the National Forum Family came together on Friday. In the morning the conclusions of the two years discussion on the topic of "Family and Inclusion" were presented by Dr. Verena Wittke und Dr. Karin Jurczyk. They represented the two working groups that had been working on these issues and whose work concluded in the publication „Familie ist Vielfalt: Inklusion leben, Teilhabe sichern“ (Family is diversity: Living inclusion, ensuring social participation).  Dr. Antje Kunstmann, a journalist from Hamburg, Germany and Paul Lehrieder, member of parliament and chair of the family committee of German Parliament, commented on the findings. Afterwards they were discussed in the plenary. The participants underlined the advantages of the wide concept of inclusion that was used, which goes far beyond the issues on inclusive schooling and supporting students with disabilities. The twelve guidelines that show a possible way to an inclusive society were emphasised.

 

In the afternoon the participants decided on a new topic for the next two years. The advisory board of the Bundesforum Familie had chosen four potential topics out of the 40 proposals that were initially sent in by the participants: "Refugee and families", "Parenthood today", "Digitization and family", and "Domestic and family violence". Those four topics were discussed in four sessions of small discussion groups. After having fruitful and interesting discussions the participants voted for "Refugee and families" as new topic to be worked on in the next two years.
