The association weltweiterdenken Inc. (the name is a combination of the words “World” and “thinking beyond”) is a consortium of interested people, many of which have served as a volunteer in projects around the world for at least a year. We want to foster social engagement for a just, solidly united, and ecological sustainable environment, for example by organizing seminars. We want to offer a forum for exchange, networking, mutual teaching, and joint project and ideas.
At least once a year the association hosts a meeting that lasts several days. Next to workshops and top-class lectures, these meetings offer the opportunity for inspiring and productive cooperation based on the enthusiasm and dedication of participants. Beyond these meetings, the members of weltweiterdenken Inc. and other interested people work together in topic-centered and regional groups. These groups organize various workshops and meetings themselves. Start-ups are always possible! All people are welcome to join!
