Over ninety representatives from churches and religious communities of Muslims and Buddhists met in Wuppertal from 13 to 16 July 2017 for a joint pilgrimage for justice and peace that was also a demonstration against extremism and religiously motivated violence. The participants came from more than twelve countries in Africa, Asia, and Europe.

During the meeting, attendees exchanged what they had learned about how to combat and overcome extremism and violence in interfaith initiatives and actions. The United Evangelical Mission was invited to the international conference, together with the Evangelical Church in the Rhineland, the Evangelical Church of Westphalia, and the Catholic organisation Justitia et Pax. Daniel Legutke, human rights officer at the Justitia et Pax German Commission, said during his introduction: “I am pleased that we have succeeded in inviting such a diverse and representative selection of important religious representatives to Wuppertal.”
