Our conviction - sustainable development and global justice belong directly together

For us, sustainable development and global justice belong directly together.

Climate change and the progressive destruction of our environment affect all human beings. But those who suffer the most from the consequences are those who are least responsible: People in the Global South, people who are economically incapable of mitigating the consequences, people who receive little or no government support.

It is a fatal cycle of poverty, destroyed livelihoods, social grievances, conflicts, human rights violations, forced by world trade structures, political power relations and the overuse of resources.  In order to enable a dignified life for all, today and in the future, we must change much of how we run our economies and consume. It is about nothing less than a social, economic and ecological transformation, about the development of a "culture of sustainability" that "leaves no one behind", as the United Nations has set out in its Agenda 2030 with its 17 goals for sustainable development.

We take up these issues and challenges in our educational and advisory work and support campaigns, actions and projects that are politically or practically moving towards justice, peace and the integrity of creation.
