Since their inception over 20 years ago, the Berlin Buddy Bears have been committed to peaceful coexistence between people of different origins, cultures and religions. The likeable ambassadors of a cosmopolitan Berlin have become a symbol of tolerance and international understanding through a variety of different projects. But their mission goes beyond promoting global dialogue: they stand up for a sustainable approach that has the future of our world in mind. Through various initiatives, the Buddy Bears contribute to creating awareness for sustainable action while supporting children in need. Because peace, respect and tolerance start with a sustainable concern for our planet and all its inhabitants.
