    Hello, we're Über den Tellerrand.

    Über den Tellerand (‘beyond your plate’ in English) is a commonly used German expression for open-mindedness. Our organisation was founded in 2013 and is based in Berlin.What started out as a student project, has become an enriching and inclusive international community where ‘people on the move’ come to find a sense of belonging and experience care and compassion. At the same time, we provide avenues for ‘people on the move’ to enrich their host communities by sharing their own knowledge and unique skillsets.We apply a holistic approach to the complex process of integrating newcomers into German society, while at the same time acknowledging and empowering their agency. By bringing newcomers together with their host communities, we aim to create a sense of belonging as well as reduce stereotypes and prejudices on both sides. These efforts contribute towards the creation of a more united, inclusive and open society.
