Create a “Dad-Cast” podcast, test exciting nature experiments, or exchange ideas at an open online meeting for fathers: under the motto “Do something together, experience, discover and have fun doing it”, the 3rd Nuremberg Father’s Week offers a rich programme from the 7th to the 17th of May 2021 – with purely digital offers for fathers alone, as well as fathers with their children or grandfathers with their grandchildren.

The Father’s Week kicks off with a lecture and subsequent discussion on the topic; “Images of Fathers and Being a Father Today” on Friday, 7 May 2021, from 6 to 8 pm. Prof. Dr Andreas Eickhorst provides insights into father-related research, showing how the paternal image in society continues to change.
