We will remember this unusual year long into the future. As we all know, there have been and still are many sad, difficult and challenging events.
Still, we will remember other aspects too: unrelenting willingness to help, solidarity and the speed at which we learned to work digitally.
For us at the International Cooperation department, our Covid 19 Taskforce stands out: After a brief period of shock because everything was suddenly different, this taskforce was established and began diligently working on a new website at www.covid19.ptb.de.
This is where ideas emerge on how we can counter the corona pandemic from the specific perspective of international cooperation and with the help of a functioning quality infrastructure. This is why instead of putting our projects on hold, we are using new formats to meet health-related, economic and social consequences of the Covid 19 pandemic in countries in the Global South.
For example, we have reported on project activities on this site during the last ten months – feel free to take a look at the archive of this blog.
The International Cooperation department would like to greatly thank all its supporters and wishes you a happy – and above all healthy – New Year 2021!
With confidence in the future and kind regards,

We would be pleased if, next year in December, Braunschweig will look like in our photo again.
