International Ecumenical Centre

Ökumenische und interreligiöse Perspektiven aus dem Ausland

The International Ecumenical Centre is a place for international participants to contribute their own interfaith topics. Worldwide, over 80% of people are members of a religion. Faith communities often have a great deal of influence in their society. For many, their religious identity is more important than their nationality. Religions can be a factor for promoting both peace and violence. At the International Ecumenical Centre we want to build conversations about faith and identity beyond nationalism, about religious activism worldwide and faith as a factor. We are especially looking forward to having interfaith and ecumenical cooperation.
