Welcome to EPiZ!

EPiZ - Information Centre for Development Education

... is a house of Global Learning and Education for Sustainable Development. Under its roof, many different projects work together and people meet. We are working mostly regionally in the state of Baden-Württemberg, but cooperate with numerous organisations and programmes also Germany-wide and internationally.

Global Learning

... means for us, to learn together in times of globalisation. We take a close look at global interconnections: Which role and responsibility do we have in global society? Critically and yet optimistically, we develop visions of a just and peaceful world, in which all beings and also natural resources are treated with care. And thus we discover possibilities to act now for shaping a just, peaceful and sustainable world.

Please note: As we are mainly working with target groups and partners in the German-speaking context, the English part of our website focuses mainly on our international cooperations and materials that we offer in English. For more information, feel free to contact us!

We connect school classes and initiatives in Baden-Württemberg with adult education centres in Sierra Leone, to engage in educational partnerships. Click here for the project.

Our New Project "DEAL with it!"

With a Living Library in February, we bring together youth and climate policy experts. Together with our partners in Austria, Czech Republic and Hungary, we organise a youth conference and a summit later in 2022, where youth can engage actively in EU climate politics and make their voices heard.
