Over five years ago, the Pan-African Parliament — an offshoot of the African Union — was created in Ethiopia. Since then, the parliament has been moved to Midrand, South Africa, a town about halfway between Johannesburg, and that country’s capital, Pretoria. The body’s 265 parliamentary representatives are elected by the legislatures and parliaments of the AU’s 53 respective member states.

The building, which just began in May 2009 and was due to open next year, has just been delayed due to the discovery of a swamp and wetland area on the building site. The area is presumed to be part of the Hennops River, which runs through both Pretoria and Johannesburg.

Engineers, architects and local policymakers are now trying to work out how to incorporate the wetland into the design of the structure.

“We are pleased that the wetland was discovered before more damage was done to the area,” said Makude Kekana, who is overseeing the project for South Africa’s Department of Public Works, in an interview with the BBC.

The VSG Produktionsschule organizes  a videoworkshop on the topic of “Coexistence”. Teenagers are welcome to participate in this workshop. They should be more than 14 years old.

On the 3rd and 4th of August, from 2pm to 6pm,  Verein Miteinander invits us to feel variety and experience differences. In front of the Basecamp of 80+1 there is a snake finding its way. Its a snake made out of many different chairs. How does it feel to sit on this chair? And how does it fell to sit on the next one? How does the world look while sitting on the chair at the end of the snake? Inside the basecamp many boxes, all with different things in it, are placed next to the global window. Feel and enjoy the differences! On the Global Window films show peaceful, funny, exciting,…coexistence.

Coexistence is particularly difficult when there is strained history to overcome. How can peoples that have fought each other overcome their differences?

How Wikipedia around the World defines Coexistence (add your language)

English: Peaceful coexistence was a theory developed during the Cold War among Soviet-influenced Communist states that they could peacefully coexist with capitalist states.

Spanish (Cohesión social): Social cohesion refers to, in sociology, the degree of consensus among members of a social group in the perception of belonging to a common project or situation..
