Label: Purpose & Activities

Our purpose is to promote dialogue and peacebuilding actions between different religions in Berlin.

In 2009, the URI Berlin CC was very much engaged in the erection of the URI PEACE POLE in the Mauerpark (Park of the Wall) on April 30th, 2009, which divided Berlin into East and West for 28 years. Under the protection of a Berlin TV cameras - Taufiq Mempel, Peter Amsler and his family, Adilah Dilman, Ralf-Mu¨ller Amenitsch and many others – could remind the audience that the people in Germany themselves, but especially also their neighbors, had to suffer terribly under the effects of World War II. All the more beautiful it is today, to see that there is no hate between the peoples nowadays - as former German Federal Chancellor Helmut Schmidt says. In addition, the URI Berlin CC has established a Sunday's film afternoon in cooperation with a meditation centre in the middle of one of Berlin’s municipalities Prenzlauer Berg. These film afternoons focus on spirituality and dialogue.

Our dream is to establish a more lively and vivid approach to dialogue that is more than intellectual. We dream of practical commnication and joint activities for peace.
