Army in school?! What can be done against them?

Army in the classroom – How the Bundeswehr advertises in schools and what can be done against it
“Do what really counts” – this is the motto used by the German army to win the favor of young people.
With the 100 billion euro rearmament program for the Bundeswehr, it also needs more and more soldiers to operate the newly purchased weapons – students in particular are the “targets” of the army recruiters:
The Bundeswehr even has a fixed cooperation agreement with the Bavarian Ministry of Education. The lectures by youth officers at schools are intended to convince young people of the army and the expansive foreign and security policy of the German government. Career advisors then recruit the students directly for service with weapons during class trips – the Bundeswehr accepts 17-year-olds into their ranks and trains them with weapons.
The army is also trying to become the topic of school break conversations with its own YouTube commercials. But shouldn’t young people be educated in non-violent conflict resolution and peaceful coexistence?
The lecture takes a critical look at the Bundeswehr’s “advertising campaign”, explains the background and makes suggestions as to how the army advertising can be countered. There is then room for an (maybe) controversial discussion.

Our speaker Michael Schulze von Glaßer (*1986) is a political scientist (M.A.), advisor to the “Militarization Information Center”, political director of the “German Peace Society – United War Service Opponents” and has written several books on army advertising

The lecture will take place in the Nachbarschaftshaus Gostenhof
Adam-Klein-Straße 6, Nürnberg
6:30 p.m.

The lecture will be in German language

Organized by the GEW Studis FAU and the trade union for Education and Science Mittelfranke
