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!


Salsa : dance and lifestyle

In the programme of 15.03.2023, the BtE speakers Rocío and Daniela from the editorial office "Global Learning on air" talk about Salsa today and also about the history of this music and dance form, which is connected with the Latin American way of life like hardly any other. However, Salsa music is also associated with many topics related to Global Learning, e.g. colonial history, familiar experiences and migration, interculturality and a sense of community, as well as learning not only on the cognitive level, but also with the body, with movement and the energy and communication needed when dancing in pairs.

Salsa : baile y forma de vida

En el programa del 15.03.2023, Rocío y Daniela de la redacción "Aprendizaje Global on Air“ hablan sobre la Salsa en la actualidad y también sobre la historia de esta forma de música y baile, que está conectada con el modo de vida latinoamericano como casi ninguna otra. Sin embargo, la música Salsa también está asociada a muchos temas relacionados con el Aprendizaje Global, por ejemplo, la historia colonial, las experiencias familiares y de migración, la interculturalidad y el sentido de comunidad, así como el aprendizaje no sólo a nivel cognitivo, sino también con el cuerpo, con el movimiento y la energía y la comunicación necesarias cuando se baila en pareja.
