The KYTKE project deals with topics related to broad-mindedness and discrimination. The project aims to further interaction by offering people a safe environment in which to discuss and process these topics of great societal relevance. KYTKE has operated on a nationwide scale since 2012 and has reached over 100,000 students and thousands of teachers and parents.
