This is our mission. The SEZ team is available to answer any questions you may have at any time. Please feel free to speak and write to us.

The Baden-Württemberg Development Cooperation Foundation wants to sensitize the population of Baden-Württemberg for globally responsible action and show how everyone can do something for a fairer world. The foundation promotes and networks private, municipal and regional initiatives to improve and deepen development cooperation with the countries of the Global South. In doing so, it strengthens the awareness of citizens in Baden-Württemberg of the need for development cooperation.

The SEZ's mission is to provide platforms for exchange and discussion. This way, people with different backgrounds, perspectives and opinions can work together to find solutions that will make our world more sustainable and fair. The SEZ is concerned with encounters at eye level. It's about relationships between people and long-term partnerships in which both sides can take each other's perspective and learn from each other. The diverse encounters between people should always be characterized by interculturally sensitive interaction, respectful interaction and mutual respect, honesty and transparency. The SEZ's understanding of partnership does not exclude anyone, but sees diversity as an opportunity.

From Urbanstrasse to Werastrasse: Teamwork for global connections and encounters

While in 1991 the SEZ's first office on Urbanstrasse had four employees, today the SEZ on Werastrasse has a team of 4 employees whose skills are as diverse as the SEZ's project portfolio. The goal of making our own global integration noticeable by enabling human encounters is the central motivation of our work. The collaboration with people from Baden-Württemberg and the world shows us again and again that we are... Partners can and must learn from Burundi and the countries of the so-called global south.
