Specialists for lectures and presentations

    In conjunction with our partners, we offer speakers on topics related to our worldwide development cooperation work. Learn more from guests from our partner countries, our international co-workers or young specialists who participate in the PEP! programme.

    We shall be happy to pay you a visit! Mission 21's specialists will give you vivid insights into our core themes: education, healthcare, agriculture and livelihood security, and peace work. We will describe our work in emergency aid and reconstruction, as well as our advocacy activities in support of gender equity and religious freedom. We will present the project work undertaken by our partners in Africa, Asia and Latin America, and we will give you fascinating insights into the 200-year history of Mission 21 and its supporting associations.

    Our speakers are available for information events, religious services, tuition sessions or events to thank volunteers.

    These personal encounters offer plenty of opportunities to discuss current issues. Here are some examples: "How does personnel exchange in development cooperation work at eye level?" – "What does 'Mission' mean nowadays?" or "What are the possibilities and limitations for interfaith exchange and interfaith peace work?" We're looking forward to hearing from you!
