Workshop Wittenberg is here!


Workshop Wittenberg will bring together 140 young Lutherans from the furthest corners of the earth for a fortnight of discussion, planning and great ideas to keep the LWF Communion moving forward. It all starts on September 23. Make sure you follow all the discussion, debate and planning on our dedicated live-stream channel, through video blogs and on social media. Be inspired by the enthusiasm of young Lutherans and get caught up in the energy and excitement of this truly global gathering.

LWF Youth Priorities

Sustainability | Society, economy and the environment

LWF Youth promote practices and policies for today that do not compromise the capacity of future generations to meet their needs.

Gender Justice

LWF Youth call on the Lutheran communion to challenge systems and practices that limit men’s and women’s choices based on gender.

LWF Visibility and the Role of Youth

LWF Youth advocate for improved ways of communicating, decision-making and meeting to facilitate more active youth participation.
