EPIZ – Zentrum für Globales Lernen in Berlin
EPIZ is a center for global citizenship education.
We are a non-profit association and have been involved in educational work for teachers, students and extracurricular facilitators for over 35 years.
Our large pool of facilitators and extensive collection of didactic materials enable us to touch on a great variety of globalization issues. Our work contributes to making past and present global interrelations visible and helping individuals to reflect on their roles and responsibilities within this framework. We are engaged with issues of social justice, human rights and global sustainability.
We are concerned to observe that expressions of inhumane attitudes are becoming increasingly commonplace and often remain unchallenged. For this reason, we have taken a position in the debate on „neutrality“ in political education with a statement for teachers and facilitators in our educational field. Our goal is to systematically anchor global learning in the education system.
