Enabling Mutual Learning


Wir laden zu regelmäßigen Veranstaltungen in Berlin-Marzahn ein und realisieren europaweite Bildungsprojekte mit Partnerorganisationen in der EU (Erasmus+). Zur Förderung der Diskussionskultur bieten wir außerdem Gesprächssalons zu gesellschaftspolitischen Themen an. Unsere Arbeit richten wir an dem humanistischen Bildungsideal von Wilhelm von Humboldt aus: „Soviel Welt wie möglich in die eigene Person zu verwandeln, ist im höheren Sinn des Wortes Leben.“ Wir stehen keiner Partei nahe und sind offen für Menschen verschiedener Meinungen und 'Hintergründe'.

About us

The weltgewandt ("open to the world") Institute for Intercultural Political Education invites you to discover the worlds on your doorstep, close surrounding and far away – and to benefit from them. weltgewandt has education to offer. Not in the sense of schooling, but rather as a stimulus for independent thought. And not as ‘classical’ teaching either, as is often the case in school, but by means of creative methods. Adequate information is nevertheless ensured. The focus of attention will be placed on multiple perspectives and discussion, empowerment and the stimulation of contact as well as encounter. Subject areas that are given preferential treatment are: the economy and social issues, diversity and integration, and the culture of remembrance. weltgewandt’s offers address people of all social and cultural backgrounds. We would like to encourage the release of creative energy and the discovery of a sense of self-efficacy, whilst advocating democracy, fairness, freedom, tolerance and human rights. Our projects are financed by the European Union and the Federal State of Berlin.
