On Tuesday there was a meeting with the topic »DemocraTIQ« in the context of the new opening of the youth club TIQ. While enjoying a coffee, the young people were to be given the opportunity to participate democratically in shaping the common rules of the club and how to deal with each other. There was a lot of discussion and talk among the young people about the fact that the youth club is not only there for free WLAN and mobile phone games, that "no" also means "no", that one should not provoke anyone and that such behaviour should also have consequences. They also want more board games and joint meetings, as they appreciate the social contacts and the exchange with the staff. With 17 young people, the event was very well received.
