Welcome to the Marie-Schlei-Verein

The Marie Schlei Association, a non-profit non-governmental organisation founded in 1984 in memory of Development Minister Marie Schlei, focuses on sustainable development and gender justice and aims to contribute to overcoming inequality and empowering women. Women’s education projects in cooperation with partner organisations in Africa, Asia and Latin America are promoted in order to overcome poverty and underdevelopment.  In 2018 we were able to help 1200 women to a professional qualification and income. Help for self-help, partnership, not sponsorship are our terms of cooperation. In addition, the Marie-Schlei Association participates in national and international conferences and discussions on the sustainability agenda and gender justice. The situation of women in developing countries is discussed and informed. Solidarity is needed for their better future!

Invitation to the sixth Hamburg Council

on the implementation of the UN Agenda 2030
for sustainable development

With its Senate printed matter 21/9700, Hamburg is on its way to ecological, social and economic sustainability. How and where should the implementation take place? We want to take a position on this on the basis of advice that is open to discussion. After all, we want an economically, ecologically, socially and culturally sustainable society.
for a life worth living for everyone.
The 2030 agenda of the United Nations attempts to initiate appropriate measures to make our way of life and economic activity sustainable in the sense of ecological, economic and social sustainability. Without social justice and decent work, sustainability makes no sense. Social justice and social cohesion are a prerequisite for the success of ecological restructuring.
The sixth Hamburg Council deals with sustainable budgetary and fiscal policy, including gender budgeting and a sustainable economy. Both topics are full of conflicts and are in tension with other goals of the ecological, social, culturally and socially sustainable development of our societies. Interviews, impulse lectures and discussions will give insight into the topic. In two subsequent working groups, demands for implementation are then worked out.
