In the heart of Europe

“Visiting an asylum centre and witnessing the challenges faced by refugees in Europe today was an intense and emotional experience that will stay with me for life”, says QVARTZ Consultant Patrycia Zaporowski. Last weekend, she and 59 other young consultants from our Nordic ComOne community went to Berlin for a CSR-focused getaway. The consultants engaged with refugees in different settings around the city to get a better understanding of how Berlin tackles the migrant challenges. Some visited an asylum centre housing more than 700 refugees whereas others helped young refugees with their math homework. Inspired by the many strong and passionate people they met, the consultants held a workshop on how QVARTZ can engage in more CSR-related initiatives. Afterwards, all 60 consultants challenged each other in an outdoors high rope course, MountMitte. Staying true to tradition, they rounded off the trip with a visit to the traditional Biergarten for some fine drafts.
