  • Meet us

    We are committed to interreligious dialogue, we network and educate people. We reflect on international educational approaches and develop them further.

Advanced Training 2022

In 2022, we will again offer numerous training and continuing education programs. They will take place in all three regions of UEM and in English or German.  

All our educational programs follow our principles of "Global Learning in Ecumenical Perspective (GLEP)": They are conducted in internationally composed groups and with internationally composed educational coordinators.

A few of our programs are open only to groups that are already established, such as volunteers preparing to leave the country. This is noted with the individual programs. All other programs are open to anyone interested.

Are you interested? Feel free to contact us and get in touch with the contact person mentioned in the program.
