The Academy of Global Education is centered around unfolding the three fundamental developments of being human. BODY, MIND, SOUL.
Within all aspects of our work we incorporate the following seven skills of development:
If you want to discover the ocean you have to get off-shore
Age offers courses for people, whether "young or old", who want to consciously develop their personality and who would like to create new perspectives for their lives.
Why should you attend our seminars, courses and lectures?
What can be of use to you in attending our courses?
These seminars, courses and lectures exist to enable you to develop your personal potential, build new life-perspectives, and personally influence your quality of life in a positive way.
These points include:
Body – Mind – Soul
...we are a unit as a human being, thus we have to take care of all three parts:
Health and fitness (well-being) for the body
Positive thinking for the mind
Empathy for the soul
You gain strength, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing you think you cannot do.
The goal for the Academy of Global Education is connected with the development of our generations:
Kurt goal's for the Academy of Global Education are:
Christine's goal's similarly for the Academy of Global Education are:
Above all the educational goal is to create people not afraid of doing new things, people who are inventive, creative, who like to discover. Step out with a critical mind, not accepting everything just because it has always been that way.

Looking back I have always been an open minded person. The NEW, the different paths, different thoughts, different way of being has been of attraction to me. Learning to live out of my own comfort zone taught me that new doors open, new trails to walk on. Looking forward, never back.!!!
I have learned to take falls as challenges, rather than failure. Being inquisitive has been the sure way to learn new things. Always having dreams, and learn to follow them.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it´s the only thing that ever has!
This has been also like a guide in my life, as I believe that each one of us can make the difference.
I am the mother of three grown up children. Have always felt a special relationship to young people and in my many activities throughout my life have always been in one way or the other close to young people. As a young person I have been involved in many different kinds of sport. Skills like teamwork and responsibility towards others and myself were learned, as well as finding out about personal limits.
Later I became a teacher in secondary education, covering areas like Physical Education, German, Special Educational Needs and organizing the area of Community and Service for all senior school students. Life taught me many soft skills like teamwork, ability to cooperate, empathy, etc... many organisational skills as well as some artistic skills.
Sports was always the key for my own development. An athletic family gave me the power and strength to work hard to reach my personal goals. I was very successful in decathlon, 400m, 400m Hurdles, 800m, and pole vaulting at a national and international level. I appreciate the team work and camaraderie of this sport and continue my responsibility for athletics as coach and now as president of the "European Master Athletics".
After becoming an electrician I decided to study English language and physical education at the University of Kiel. I lectured at the Institution of Sport Science in Kiel for three years before I became a teacher.
My pedagogical background is covering subjects like 'prevention of violence', 'integration of students of other nationalities', supporting ADHD students, and organizing activity events for different age groups.
