The aim of our educational work is the advancement of competence to act and engagement in society in a connected and diverse world community.
We offer a great number of events on a variety of currently relevant themes and in the areas of political education, global learning and developing personal competence. Democratic values, human rights and tolerance form the basis for a constructive and critical engagement.
The emphasis of our work is on trans-cultural European and international seminars, which we organise bi- or multinationally together with our partner networks. These take place mostly in English, sometimes they are interpreted simultaneously.
Further we are offering seminars on political education and global learning for German-speaking only target audiences. Another area we support with our expertise is education in relation to the world of work at the interface of education/work or training in social competence.
Concept and organisation of the programmes are developed by our education leaders while personally interacting with our co-operation partners and specifically for the target audience. Each programme is created specifically for the particular group or constellation of groups.
The programmes are run by the education team in concert with our external colleagues. Constant evaluation and further development and reflection on our offers by our education leaders guarantee the high quality of the programmes and ensure the participants’ learning process. Through methods which are adjusted and centred around the target audience we facilitate self-motivated responsible learning with heart, hand and mind.
Our offers in the area of young people’s education are devised for different age groups, with an emphasis on the over-15 group at international conferences. However, we also offer seminars and other educational events for younger participants, on the subjects of sustainability, experiencing nature or team training, among others.
Participation and Co-operation

You can choose a project from the existing programme of events, or write to us to plan something together with us. We are happy to talk over your options for organising your own events. You can find further tips and ideas in our model offers.
