Eine Welt Camp 2017 – Registration is now open!

 

Finally!

The “Eine Welt Camp 2017“ is around the corner.

This year the five-day long camp will focus on the topic money: „Da Fällt der Groschen“. (“The penny is dropping”)

 

What is the “Eine Welt Camp”?

The „Eine Welt Camp“ (EWC) is a five-day long camp with approximately 150 participants of which many have volunteered abroad for a year as well as young adults aged between 17 and 35 years, that are interested in global development issues and topics of the global catholic church.

Ever since 1986 the camp has taken place every two to three years at the Jakobsberg of the Missionary Benedictines in Ockenheim.

 

Goal of the EWC is to enable meaningful encounters and to experience a variety of different cultures and forms of spirituality. This is made possible through theoretical and practical workshops, playful approaches to the topic,  common prayer, celebrating, camping and bonfires, recreation and a critical approach to gobal development topics .

 

Topic of the EWC 2017 is money.

Money – we have all heard about it, are in need of it and are using it every day. uns. One who has ever tried to manage without spending money for a day or even a week, will soon realize that getting along without money is not easy:

We need money to buy a bus ticket or a bread at the bakery and sometimes we can’t even use the toilette without having to pay.

It makes sense to take a closer look at the topic „money“:

Where does it come from? How did it emerge? What hides behind often heard statements like “money rules the world“, “money doesn’t smell“ or “time is money“? What does money do with us? What value does it hold in our society when it is ever-present? What is my relationship with money like? What does the Catholic Church say about money? And, last but not least: What is money?

Date: 24th – 28th May 2017

Location: Kloster Jakobsberg (closte to Bingen am Rhein)

 

Target group: young adults aged between 17 and 35 years, that are interested in global development policy issues and topics of the global catholic church and people that have volunteered abroad for a year
