Offer for schools / universities and youth groups
general age recommendation: from 13 years
The tour conveys socio-political education in an alternative way. It not only offers informative insights into the challenges and realities of life of marginalized groups, but also the opportunity to question one's own prejudices and to develop empathy.
We have found Martin's life story to be an excellent educational and chilling example for high school students, college students, and young adults. We have therefore decided to focus more on this target group.
Martin always inspires students with his honest and open way of speaking. He avoids any euphemism and reports from his own experiences with homelessness and drug use. This authenticity reinforces the impact of his stories and the chilling effect.
The positive feedback from teachers and students has confirmed to us that the tour is well received and that the participants always have good memories.
from 10 pupils/ students:
* The invoice is created on the day of the tour, so the number of participants can be changed without any problems up to the last second. In the end, only those students who can participate pay.
** We would definitely prefer a bank transfer, but cash payment is of course also possible.
Drug specific talk
for addiction prevention
Due to the great demand from teachers, we have decided to expand our offer with a special lecture on addiction prevention. For this, Martin comes personally to the school (if logistically possible, if not, alternatively to another suitable location).
During this lecture, the focus is on the topic of drug use and the associated consequences. Martin shares his personal stories and experiences to vividly illustrate just how easy it is to become addicted. He tells how the addiction had a lasting effect on the social environment and about the many friends he had lost to drugs over the years. In addition, Martin takes a critical look at the questionable Austrian withdrawal system and shows that it often only represents a "from bad to worse" solution.
The lecture offers a unique opportunity to sensitize students to the risks of drug use and to make them think. With his haunting narratives and reflections, Martin will leave a lasting impression on students*left inside.
