About us

The Song Contest "Dein Song für EINE WELT!" (Your song for ONE WORLD) is a measure from the “Globale Entwicklung in deutschen Bildungssystemen (global development in the German education systems)” programme, that is implemented by Engagement Global on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development.

As such, the song contest was established in 2015 as an accompanying measure for “EINE WELT für alle (ONE WELT for all)” School Competition on Development Policy and has been held every two years since then.

The aim of the Song Contest is to acquaint children, teenagers and young adults with topics of development policy and to strengthen the creative and musical exploration of the field of global development education both in school and lessons as well as beyond the school context.

On the following pages, you can find out more about educational field of sustainable development or global learning and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Furthermore, you can find out which institutes are behind the song contest, what the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development has to do with the contest and which partners support the song contest. In addition, we present the School Competition on Development Policy, for which the EINE WELT song (ONE WORLD song) is used as the anthem to accompany each round.
