The seminars in the afternoon are offered twice throughout the afternoon, so you have to make a choice! Please note the times.
The seminars include a 45-minute lecture as well as an equal amount of time for questions and discussion. As they are offered in two rounds, you can attend two of them.
The two forums last the whole afternoon, so that a combination with a seminar is not possible.
At the Youth Forum, lecture segments and discussion alternate. At the Theological Forum, there are initially six lecture segments of 15 minutes each that are followed by questions and discussion.
The practical courses are a taster course for children and teenagers, and also last the whole afternoon with the necessary breaks.
Begin 2.30 and 4.30 pm | break from 4.00 to 4.30 pm
When registering, you will be asked to sign up for the events .

TeenSTAR – Taster Courses
TeenSTAR Kids is a sexual education program for children from 9 to 12 years. It works in the context of body, love and new life and strongly involves the parents. In the two separate workshops "Sternstunden" for girls and "Abenteuer Erwachsenwerden" for boys, the children are offered a shortened version of the program in essential aspects. The course is offered in German only.
The TeenSTAR Youth Programme workshop is aimed at teenagers between the ages of 13 and 15. This is a time for questions and reflection: Who am I? How do I shape my relationships with other people? What is important to me in life? Finding answers is not necessarily easy, but it is essential for becoming aware of your own personality. Concrete topics will be the difference between "being in love – love" and " friendship between girls and boys." Through their questions and exchanges, the young people will find the answers that suit them personally. The course is offered in German only.
