Campaign 2018: A first tree of peace has been planted

In Arlesheim there is a new Japanese fan maple on the property of the Reformed church.

Children planted it during their camp week on the theme "Heaven and Earth". The tree planting campaign is part of Mission 21's "Peace grows with us"-campaign.

Mission 21 is committed to peace in numerous projects around the world. These include countries such as Nigeria or South Sudan, where violent conflicts are happening, and Indonesia, where tensions between Muslims and Christians are increasing. Here it is particularly important to promote inter-religious peace.
