Mannheim Forum

As members of the Mannheim Forum e.V. we take the challenge to establish an annual interdisciplinary congress at the University of Mannheim. Over the last years the Mannheim Forum has grown to become one of Germany’s biggest and most well-known congresses organized by students. It is our mission to enable exchange between students, politicians, enterprises and society. To achieve this we invite high-class speakers and discussants in order to present our yearly topic from different perspectives. Together with our numerous partners, we were able to set up memorable events for our participants in the last years.
So why should you as an international student join us? Dynamic ideas and a great team are the basis of the Mannheim Forum. Nevertheless, the event can only be as forward-thinking and creative as the students standing behind it. Considering our shift towards a more international oriented congress we would also like to see this represented in our organization team. We are especially looking for English speaking students for our “Speaker-Ressort” which is in charge of winning over interesting personalities as speakers for our discussions and talks.
If you like to organize and plan, are interested in getting in touch with exceptional people and want to help us to constantly improve the Mannheim Forum do not hesitate to contact us. Join the team of the Mannheim Forum!

Studenteninitiative für Kinder

The Studieninitiative für Kinder offers private lessons for children from educationally deprived social backgrounds. These children don’t get the same support at school as other children. Their parents cannot help them with their homework or answer questions about the subject matter. Therefore, we offer private tutoring to promote equal opportunities in education. With over 50 establishments and more than 5,000 active students in Germany, the initiative is one of the biggest organizations in Europe and the first of its kind in Germany. How can you get involved? You meet for one or two hours a week with a child at school or university and work through homework or exercises. If you are studying to become a teacher, the private lessons are an ideal chance to gain experience in teaching.
