From development service to world service – world service workers from the Global South contribute their expertise, cultural and social background and productive otherness to the work of German church-based and non-profit NGOs in the spirit of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The world is in a global crisis and social-ecological change is required to address it. Shaping the transformation will call for the participation of all people in this world. Climate change is already well advanced, ecosystems and people need urgent protection. It is important in this context to recognize the perspectives and responsibilities. It is largely the countries of the Global North that are responsible for climate change. Everyone is affected, but people from the Global South are underrepresented in the public debate.

As equals, we work together with our partner organizations in Africa, Asia and Latin America to support these people to improve their lives sustainably and out of their own re-sources. In the light of global socio-ecological challenges, we raise awareness of the causes of injustice, poverty and climate change and advocate for political change in Germany and Europe.
Your contribution to the development of educational materials and events as well as in lobbying will contribute to improving the credibility and the depth of information. Bringing in professional and personal perspectives from the Global South will help to overcome the global distance and thus also support the emotional component in educational work. In addition to your expertise, you can contribute your network contacts to development policy work in Germany, as well as develop new formats for educational work and lobbying from your own context-specific experience.
