School of tomorrow

Megatrends in school education

In November 2019, we launched the workshop series “School of tomorrow” with the support of the Robert Bosch Stiftung and the Karl Schlecht Foundation. Together with experts from the worlds of educational research and practice, civil society, business, and politics, we approach the question of which major topics and future issues of our time a pioneering new school should address.

In the kick-off workshop, we discussed the relevance of current megatrends in school education and global educational innovations with Dr Daniel Dettling, Zukunftsinstitut, and Professor Gerhard de Haan, Institut Futur, among others.

Since March 2020, workshop discussions have been taking place online at regular intervals in smaller expert groups. The focus has been on the training and continuing education of teachers, the personal development of students and the question of equal opportunities and access to education. We are very pleased that we were able to gain Margret Rasfeld, founder of the Schule im Aufbruch initiative; Nicole Scheer, Executive Director of the Heraeus Education Foundation; Professor Gerald Hüther, Chairman of the Akademie für Potentialentfaltung; as well as pupils and teachers for the discussions.

Please do get in touch If you have any questions or suggestions relating to the topic of school education:
