We are looking for creative minds and reliable organizers for the Integration Day!

What is the day of integration?

Each year in September, the city celebrates the open society in Aachen. The big citizen festival takes place in the Eurogress (Monheimsallee).

Numerous initiatives, associations and institutions dealing with the topic of integration carry the Bürgerfest. Together with the city of Aachen, they organize an attractive programme on three stages, which presents the cultural diversity in the cosmopolitan city of Aachen. On three stages, visitors can experience dance, music, sports performances, readings and theatre.

In addition, there are many opportunities to obtain information about the integration work at the information stands and to network. Visitors have the opportunity to get to know people and various institutions that are committed to successful integration.

The festival is rounded off by a fine selection of culinary specialities from various countries. And the attractive children's programme turns the Integration Day into a family celebration.

The Integration Day is mainly organized on a voluntary basis. This is why we need volunteer support in various areas every year.

Are you interested? There are basically two possibilities:

How can you get involved?

Additionally, the organization team functions as a ThinkTank for new ideas.
