Webinar 'Mission-Colonialism Revisited'.

What does the food crisis have to do with (neo)colonial food systems?

Today, 735 million people suffer from chronic hunger - mainly women and children in rural areas. At the same time, over 900 million tons of food are thrown away every year - a quarter of which would be enough to feed the hungry. What developments have led to the global food crisis? How can food sovereignty be strengthened through biodiverse, sustainable, local agriculture? In this webinar, we want to find answers and provide suggestions for action.

Encounter trip to Chile

puerto varas

The encounter trip 2024 leads to Chile, "the elongated country" full of contrasts. The culture of the country is as rich as the landscape is diverse, ranging from untouched wilderness to endless expanses and pulsating life in the cities. In addition to the scenic sights, we will visit Mission 21 projects and church communities and get to know the country and its people. Optionally, the trip can be extended to Patagonia and Argentina.

"Reading the Bible with different eyes": an intercultural exchange on the climate crisis

Glasses on books

Without realising it, we in the Global North read the Bible from a Eurocentric perspective. We receive completely different readings of the Bible from other parts of the world. What can we learn from these perspectives? Three theologians present contextual interpretations of the Bible and invite you to discuss the current climate crisis.
