Daniel Untch studied political science and holds a master's degree in peace and conflict studies.
After his studies, he first worked as a consultant at the Protestant Working Group for Conscientious Objection and Peace in Bonn before becoming a consultant for peace work at the Catholic peace movement pax christi in the dioceses of Limburg and Mainz.
In this function he dealt with the topic of peace in many different ways. For example, he was involved in regional activities against arms exports, co-organized the ecumenical campaign Wanderfriedenskerze (Wandering Peace Candle), and was involved in the campaign "Menschenrecht statt Moria" (Human Rights instead of Moria), which campaigned for refugees from the camps at the EU's external borders to be accepted in Germany.
After graduating from high school, Daniel Untch spent 2010/11 in Bolivia as part of a voluntary social year. There he worked as an English teacher in different parts of the country. In addition, together with other volunteers, he organized a place for children to play and learn, including homework help. His time in Bolivia had a lasting impact on him and sensitized him to issues of global justice.
As a consultant for peace education, Daniel Untch is the contact person for questions of peace ethics and non-violent action for church congregations, church groups and institutions, schools and other interested parties at the Center for Ecumenism.
He is in charge of the exhibition "Frieden geht anders" ("Peace is different"), and is the contact person for the topics of arms exports, the "Unter 18 nie!" ("Never under 18!") campaign, and for counseling on conscientious objection.
Daniel Untch is currently developing content on the connection between climate justice and peace.
