The right for education is a crucial part of society and its development. In times of a globalised world this education might not take part in the country one is born in.
For many young students from around the world, the UWC movement or any international high school is their opportunity to fulfill their dreams, gaining the knowledge they need to improve their country in the world. To deny them these opportunities would not only hurt the students, but our entire globe.
UWC stands for United World Colleges, an international educational movement consisting of 18 schools in 18 different countries, thriving for peace, intercultural understanding and sustainability.
One of those schools is situated within the heart of the German black forest in Freiburg, the UWC Robert Bosch College. It was meant to become the new home of 100 incoming students in the upcoming august, around 50 of those coming from outside of Europe.
But due to the ongoing covid-19 pandemic the EU has put heavy immigration restrictions on most countries outside of Europe, making an entry to Germany for high students for the start of the school year nearly impossible, taking away these students' chance to receive the life changing education they worked incredibly hard to earn, even though they would be quarantined upon arrival. Furthermore, university students are allowed to enter the country without restrictions.
We demand justice for our future classmates and for all international high school students to be treated like university students, allowing them entrance to Germany and access to their well deserved education.
Sincere thanks from the Robert Bosch United World College Class of 2020-2022
