Governance

Das Thema Governance in der Robert Bosch Stiftung
We support members of the public, decision-makers, and opinion leaders who are engaged in driving the social change in their countries. Based on a governance approach that focuses on the common good, people from all walks of life – politics, administration, civil society, science, and business – join forces to develop solutions to current challenges in their cities, countries, or regions.
We bring them together on a local, regional, or international level, offering platforms for an exchange as well as further training. In doing so, we set great store by working with domestic and local partners and by taking into account various forms of social change.
In projects such as Baladiya – New Paths in Urban Development, or City Makers China-Germany, urban development experts interact across national borders to discuss how cities can be designed to become better places to live in. Our projects contribute to opening up the social debate, building the foundation for sustainable change processes.
We are active in the following projects
