Want to join? 

There are many ways in which you can get involved at zdi.NRW. Do you have an idea for a course or a project? On the MINT community you can get in direct contact with the zdi networks and zdi school labs in your region and send them your requests and suggestions.

If you often take part in zdi courses and want to show what you can experience there, there is the possibility of a take over on our Instagram account (@mintblogger) close. With a take over, you "take over" the channel for a day, ie you take photos/videos and write a text for a post or create stories that we then publish on our account. Of course, you can also simply share your experiences on the MINT community. You can also email us here Fabio Mancarella Report. 

And if you really want to dive deep and support zdi.NRW directly, you can get involved in the zdi youth advisory board. The zdi youth advisory board is a committee made up of young people from all over North Rhine-Westphalia that jointly develop their own course concepts, vote on various topics and are questioned by the networks. We have summarized all information here. Contact person is here Isabell Stollenwerk
