Dark blue, azure blue and sky blue - these are the colours of the refugee accommodation, affectionately called "Blue Village", in which 160 refugees have found a new temporary home. 

Since autumn 2015, almost 100 students from Jacobs University have been working in the "Blue Village". They come from different countries of the world, live and study together on the campus of Jacobs University, which is located in the immediate vicinity of the refugee accommodation. Students at Jacobs University aim to help refugees integrate into Bremen and Germany. They support the children in their everyday life and give German lessons, play with the children in the context of art and sports activities and develop over time into confidants and friends.

Above all, the "Refugee Support Club" wants to strengthen one basic idea and bring it to the public's attention: We all stand on a common basis. No matter what country we come from. No matter what religion we have. No matter what language we speak. We share common basic beliefs. We believe that educational opportunities should not be a question of nationality and family background. We are convinced that urgent problems of our time can only be solved sustainably through dialogue between world cultures and we know that people can live together peacefully regardless of their origin and religion, because we experience it every day on our campus.
