About us

The Kreisau-Initiative was founded in 1989 by East and West Berliners in order to support the set-up and maintenance of an international youth meeting centre in Krzyżowa, Poland. We organise youth encounters, workshops, trainings and conferences for different target groups. Our projects are international with participants coming from all over the world, belonging to different generations and having different educational and social backgrounds. Thematically, they fall into the fields of contemporary history and human rights, inclusive education, sustainability and intergenerational dialogue. Read more
