Association of Saxon Organisations for Youth Education
is an approved organisation for youth welfare. It is an umbrella association that has united local and regional organisations since March 1992.
In 2012 LJBW celebrated its 20th anniversary.
The organisation’s occupation is consistent with the principles of the German law for welfare for children and young people, in particular with each young person’s right to encouragement of her/his development and education to become a responsible and social personality.
Since 20 years, the association has aimed to design the scenery of youth welfare with manifold activities of members and to develop new ideas. The leading of the young generation to miscellaneous key aspects of nature, science and technology developed more and more to be the profile of the association. As an umbrella association, LJBW is able to fulfill its counselling and supporting function, not only for its members, but also for partners and people who show an interest. This is realised by intentions of further education and counselling about subsidies and projects.
The Association of Saxon Organisations for Youth Education is motivating girls and boys to work on scientific and technical topics in their spare time. The extracurricular youth education of LJBW, oriented on natural sciences and technology, follows annually changing current key aspects of science and society:
LJBW is orientating its projects on the current German Scientifical Year – the topic of 2013 is: “The Demographic Chance”.
Further projects by LJBW will be influenced by the topics that are announced by UNO and UNESCO for 2013: The UN-Decade of “Education for Sustainable Development” is continued by the annual topic “Mobility”. 2013 is also going to be the „Year of International Cooperation for Water” framed by the UN-Decade „Water – Source of Life“.
Scientists have started the global initiative „Mathematics of Planet Earth“ to demonstrate how mathematics can contribute to solve some of the current problems in the world.
