As a Bremen foundation for peace the schwelle fosters activities for justice and peace in the region Bremen and cooperates with other organizations in Germany.
There has been particularly close cooperation for many years between the association gewaltfrei handeln, which trains peace workers, and the schwelle Foundation. In the network Rethinking Security, die schwelle is committed to peace logic and non-violent solutions in conflicts. In the European network Church and Peace we work internationally with many others on peace and reconciliation. We support historical peace research in order to draw lessons from the past for present conflicts.
