About organization

The association works in three areas:

  1. peace politics: actions, campaigns, exhibitions, presentations, lectures and workshops next to local and regional networking
  2. Peace education: own workshops, seminars and trainings in Halle, the region and abroad in cooperation with local to international partners next to mediation of offers and trainers
  3. Peace services – international voluntary service: consultation and information for interested persons and organisations next to hosting, sending and coordinating within „weltwärts“ and „European voluntary service“

“We have a dynamic understanding of peace: We do not understand peace as a state of affairs, not as a far-off goal and not as just as the absence of war. To us peace is a path towards a cooperative, fair and non-violent living together in diversity by which self-fulfilment and freedom of each individual become possible”.
