Think global – act local
This guiding principle of many international non-profit organizations has long seemed a platitude: but due to increasing globalization with its gap between rich and poor and because of climate change it is becoming more important and more apposite from day to day. It is therefore essential that those acting locally exchange views and experience, build networks, learn from each other and pass on impulses for change. We provide the opportunity for this, for instance in our conference centre on Wasan Island. Here people from all over the world meet in order to take advantage of our encounter culture for intensive cooperation.
