Workshop: „Whistleblowing – Of what concern is this to me?“
Whether it is the Ukraine Affair involving Donald Trump, the exposure of world-wide tax fraud, or Edward Snowden’s disclosures regarding the spying of our internet communication – everybody has become aware of a number of cases by now. However, only very few people realise that whistleblowing does not always have to happen on the top secrecy level of the state but can become part of one’s own reality from one day to the next.
Because cases like the one of the pharmacist Martin Porwoll, who exposed the systematic underdosing of cancer medication in a pharmacy, Brigitte Heinisch, who went right up to the European Court of Justice with her publication of negligent care in hospitals, or Juan Moreno, who triggered the biggest SPIEGEL scandal of the last decades, are the less known but equally important whistleblower stories.
This is why we offer Workshops and Presentations for schools, youth organisations and other educational institutions, where the awareness of young people between 15 and 21 years of age can be heightened for this subject. We want to get talking about this subject to young people whose career start still lies in their future; we want to elaborate the significance of whistleblowing together with them and give them a first survey of their own rights in the working environment. With little games, real-life cases and a lot of space for discussions we want to take the participants to this difficult and yet important subject matter in a playful manner and without any special previous knowledge required.
The project is funded by the Berliner Landeszentrale für politische Bildung (Berlin State Centre for Political Education) and supervised by Antonia Peißker, who will be available to you for registration, implementation as well as for further questions about the workshop:
