New phase for UWC Robert Bosch College

The cafeteria and auditorium building represents a new phase in the construction of the UWC Robert Bosch College. With the laying of the  ceremonial first stone, each person placed an item into a time capsule: local and foreign coins, blueprints, and a speech by Honorary UWC President Nelson Mandela. Christof Bosch, grandson of the company’s founder, contributed a biography of Robert Bosch.

The first United World College (UWC) in Germany, located in Freiburg, is a specialized high school for students from around the world. It concentrates on intercultural understanding, quality education, and social responsibility. “In Freiburg, the program has a special focus on the environment and sustainability,” says Ingrid Hamm, member of the board of management at the Robert Bosch Stiftung. The foundation and the company are investing €40 million in the project. The groundbreaking ceremony was held in 2011 to mark the 150th birthday of Robert Bosch.
