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!
