The work of the various desks in the division of Education on Development Policy is aimed at change processes in our church and society. With Christian responsibility, we consider global issues and impulses from international cooperation and draw conclusions for the life and work practice in our country. With educational offers on development policy issues, we want to encourage and empower people to actively participate in shaping their social and political environment worldwide in the interests of more justice. As part of our lobbying work, we cooperate with numerous political and social actors for a solidary and sustainable way of life in which power and resources are distributed more fairly. Our commitment and that of many initiatives and groups in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Northern Germany stand for a critical, self-critical – if needed, uncomfortable – resistance.
