Using sport and physical movement as drivers for social change


Jana Gottschalk graduated from the Nationalism Studies Program at Central European University in Budapest, Hungary in 2011. She also completed an international study seminar on European migration at the European University Institute in Florence, Italy. Her final thesis was on the effects of European Union labor mobility on Eastern European migrants since the 2004 enlargement of the European Union. A Teach First Germany alumna, Jana taught German and cultural classes to newly arrived migrant children for two years and gained deep insights into the German educational system. Since 2014, Jana has worked at the Berlin-based social enterprise CamP Group. CamP Group develops and carries out best practice programs and teacher trainings for enhancing the social and political participation of migrant and refugee children, using sport and physical movement as drivers for social change.
