Anniversary events

30 Years of Mutual Understanding in Europe – Work in Progress

We would like to celebrate as diversely as our work has been for the past 30 years. So we have planned big and small events for everyone.

Have a look at the events listed below and see you there!

Partnerlab, 15th-16th August 2019


The PartnerLab “Courage to change, courage to act” will bring together 25 people with whom we have been working closely together over the last couple of years in our three areas of expertise Inclusion, Contemporary History & Human Rights as well as Social-Ecological Transformation. It will be a participatory format:

  • to meet inspiring people from our international network,
  • learn about each other’s work and exchange experience,
  • and develop new ideas for our projects.

Our topic of the year “Courage to change, courage to act” sets the tone: All over Europe and in Western democracies, we witness growing tendencies of exclusion, racism and nationalism. 30 years after the democratic revolution in Central and Eastern Europe, the future of the European project is far from certain. With our projects, we want to encourage people to engage in dialogue, actively shape their environment and create solidary, pluralist and democratic societies. Let’s do it together!
