Encounters across borders
The Kolping Society was already international in Adolph Kolping’s days and is represented now in more than 60 countries.
The objectives of the partnership work are, among others:
As an international association, we have the great opportunity to learn from and with one another. In addition to the traditional partnerships there are now also many South-South partnerships and East-South partnerships.
We are linked by the example of Adolph Kolping and numerous symbols, prayers and memorial days which are celebrated together.
This is how the Sustainable Development Goal #17: ‘Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the Global partnership for Sustainable Development’ is brought to life.
These partnerships are linked by the voluntary ‘Representatives for international partnership work’ who meet twice a year to exchange ideas about partnership work and receive training on current topics in the field of development policy.
