Vocational School Exchange Program Pforzheim – Irkutsk (Russia)
15 July, 2016:
The first vocational school student exchange for students in Pforzheim, Germany and its Siberian partner city of Irkutsk took place in 2009. This has led to various activities in the carpentry field. In 2016, there will be a second student exchange.
A project in Irkutsk that symbolizes German-Russian relationships is in the works. It will feature a large-scale playground and climbing frames with two towers connected by a bridge. In 2007, a Russian sauna hut was built in Irkutsk, which generated tremendous public interest. On the German side, the Alfons-Kern-Schule in Pforzheim leads the project efforts.
