ABOUT traces we bring HISTORY to LIFE! Über SPUREN Geschichte(n) leben!
TRACES brings people of different backgrounds and perspectives together to speak with each other, respectfully and expectantly, in order to exchange experiences and opinions. In the process, old stereotypes and current ideological limits shift, making space for greater openness and new possibilities when we encounter one another. We tap the past for clues about what to avoid repeating in the future, as well as what worked well in the past that might serve us well now as we seek a better way forward towards a more peaceable world. Spuren e.V. bringt Menschen verschiedener kultureller Herkunft und mit unterschiedlichen Anschauungen zusammen. Respektvoll und neugierig tauschen wir unsere Erfahrungen und Ansichten aus. Hierbei vertrauen wir darauf, dass sich alte Stereotypen und aktuelle ideologische Prägungen langsam verändern können – und sich dadurch Räume größerer Offenheit und neue Möglichkeiten im Umgang miteinander eröffnen. Wir spüren u.a. der Vergangenheit nach, um eine Ahnung davon zu bekommen, was wir zukünftig meiden sollten, aber auch um Impulse für Heute zu nutzen ... auf unserem Weg hin zu einer friedfertigeren Welt.

If we don’t find effective ways within the next decade to manage the spectrum of crises now facing us, we won’t survive—mid-term certainly not intact as a society and, long-term, likely not viable as a species. We can’t wait for supposed messiahs—of any political stripes—to appear to “rescue” us: We must shift into self-rescue mode and take direct, daily responsibility for the well-being of our families and ourselves. Only by reclaiming power from those who we’ve allowed over time to usurp the public forum can we muster the means to make meaningful changes in our communities and, subsequently, in our world.

TRACES of Green was an educational and service project that used the history of European settlement in the Upper Midwest’s Loess Hills as a context from which to project, explore and work towards more livable possible futures. It measured those scenarios against the instructive timeline of earlier experiences. Informed by lessons of the past, we boldly strove to face present crises as we attempted to build more humane, nature-sustaining lives, as individuals and as enduring communities. To succeed, we tried to tap deeper, more fulfilling values and craft new narratives through which to see ourselves and the world.
