No Looking Back – China Would Rather Forget the Cultural Revolution

It started with an orgy of violence – 50 years ago Mao Zedong initiated the "Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution". The effects can still be seen in today’s politics.

The Magazine "Solidarity"

The various groups in our society can come together or drift apart. At the moment, we can see this happening with the topic of refugees but solidarity affects us in ways that go beyond the refugee question. No matter in which area, we always need people who push for solidarity. You will learn about some of these dedicated individuals in this magazine.
The Robert Bosch Stiftung offers many scholarship programs to support the training and continuing education of international junior executives and enable them to exchange experiences. A large proportion of our programs is directed towards university graduates and post-graduates from the USA and Europe. In addition, we support the integration of gifted children from families, that are facing social, financial or cultural challenges, with special school scholarship programs.
The Robert Bosch Stiftung awards many prizes for exemplary ideas and initiatives in the fields of science, health, international relations, education, society and culture. The aim is to publicize outstanding projects and support their future development.
The competitions organized by the Robert Bosch Stiftung are designed to help develop and disseminate good ideas in a number of different areas. The foundation also runs these international competitions to promote social and cultural exchange. Other competitions aim at fostering the development of schools and assisting the integration of young immigrants in German society.
Programs for Journalists
Journalists play a vital role as mediators by presenting a wide range of topics critically and comprehensibly, making them accessible to wide audiences. Journalists are important partners for the Robert Bosch Stiftung in coverage of science issues and in the field of international relations. We provide continuing education for journalists in the form of seminars, information tours, meetings, and research and study residencies.
