Guest Encounters

Welthaus regularly invites guests, who work in development projects in their home countries, to come and visit Austria. These projects show us perspectives for a united society, ready to face the future.

Our Guest Encounters are not merely lectures. The project offers a shared experience and opportunities to talk with guests from Africa, Asia and Latin America. The event can be a workshop in a school, a visit to a company or a round table discussion with decision makers.

During the Encounters, we talk about living conditions in developing countries and in Europe, about fighting poverty and protecting our natural resources, about worldwide interdependencies and the effects of globalisation on our everyday lives. And we not only want our guests to tell their stories – we also want input from Austrians.

Our Guest Encounters are organised by the Welthaus offices in Linz, Graz, Klagenfurt, St. Pölten, Salzburg and Vienna.
