    Subject areas

    Globalization and society

    We live and work in a globally networked world. We are concerned with issues such as justice, sustainable development, climate protection and peaceful coexistence. Our courses also convey the perspective of our partner churches and organizations in Africa, Asia and Latin America. They show what we can learn from them and what contribution we can make in a globalized world.

    Transcultural and interreligious peacebuilding

    Religions can fuel violence in conflicts, but they can also lay the foundations for peace. At Mission 21, interreligious peacebuilding is an area of activity of our programs abroad as well as our educational work at home. We promote respectful transcultural and interreligious dialog as the basis for peaceful coexistence. Mutual learning is the basis for peace processes.

    Religion and development

    Can religions support development? In the 20th century, they were seen as a hindrance. This view has been changing since the turn of the century. Secular actors also recognize that development cooperation achieves goals better when religion is included in religious societies. Our courses discuss how religions can contribute to peaceful, just and inclusive societies.

    Spirituality worldwide

    Spirituality plays a major role in many cultures and religions in order to focus and orient oneself, to process experiences and to give depth to life. Understanding spiritual questions in other cultural contexts can give us new impulses. The workshops offer insights into what we can learn from exchanges with our partners in Africa, Asia and Latin America.

    Courses for youth groups

    What is friendship? Can we live it worldwide? The young people go on a journey of discovery, learn about development cooperation and what this has to do with friendship: In Conf lessons or on a project day on the topic of "Agents of Change". And they explore their personal goal in life, their own mission: What is my friendship service for the world?

    Encounter trips

    Mission 21 organizes encounter trips to its partner churches and partner organizations. The trips bring Mission 21's development cooperation to life. They provide insight into our project work and into the historically grown relationships with local partners. Exciting encounters with local people enrich the program, which also takes into account getting to know the geographical and social diversity of a country.
