The weltwärts joint operation
The Programme Steering Committee, the highest-level decision-making body in the weltwärts programme, consists of 15 members who represent state and civil society stakeholders. The BMZ occupies two seats, while the weltwärts Coordination Unit (wCU) of Engagement Global has three. The German implementing organisations are divided into four shared-interest groups, who share eight seats. Finally, two seats are occupied by the political representation group of volunteers in international volunteering (PFIF).
Where necessary, the Programme Steering Committee (PSC) can form working groups that draw up proposals on specific issues. Based on these proposals, the PSC takes decisions on the continued development of the programme. In the past, working groups have been formed to work on the introduction of the South-North component, amendments to the general quality criteria, or inclusion.
