Therefore, the two organisations carry on an already well established tradition of a study tour and invite you this time to Berlin in Germany. The city of Berlin and its surroundings have a special history. For a long time, the Berlin wall separated East from West, secularism shaped the East while Churches in the West took part in society and Education. This year, we celebrate 30 years Fall of the Wall – time to discover how Christian schools have developed ever since in a reunited city and country and how they managed to thrive so well. Today, Berlin is more than ever characterised by its colourfulness, attracting people from all over the world with various backgrounds, cultures and religions. How Christian schools deal with these circumstances and what kinds of profiles they have developed shall be in the centre of the study trip offered to the Berlin/Brandenburg area in Germany.

The study tour takes place from 24 to 27 September 2019. It is a joint programme offered by the IV and ICCS in cooperation with the regional church “Evangelische Kirche Berlin-Brandenburg-schlesische Oberlausitz“ (EKBO) and the regional association of Protestant schools, the “Evangelische Schulstiftung in der EKBO”. The study tour is aimed primarly at head teachers from various European countries and seeks to give them inspiration and encouragement for further development of their own professional practice.
