About 250 religious communities are part of Berlin's urban fabric. They take an active part in the shaping of coexistence - not only in religious, but also in social, political and urban planning terms. How do religious communities face the challenges of urban coexistence? How does religious identity develop in the urban environment? And what are the potentials for the further development of urban neighbourhoods? This is the theme of the Guardini Foundation's excursion series, the final goal of which will be presented in this

House of One will be built on. Imam Osman Oers and the theologian Roland Stolte (both House of One) talk about the vision behind the project and the opportunities and resistance along the way.

On the foundations of the former Petrikirche, which was first mentioned in a document in the 13th century, the construction of this very special place of confession will begin next year. A synagogue, a mosque and a church will be grouped around a common central room, open to people of any religion or belief. A place of learning, encounter and exchange is to be created. The founders - a Jewish, a Christian and a Muslim community - share basic values such as non-violence and Ehrfurt above all life, equality, solidarity, respect and truthfulness.

The tour is free of charge, but registration is required at info@guardini.de or 030 217 358 22.
