About the project
People develop place attachment by getting involved in whatever happens in their community. Sustainable strategies and concepts, local partnerships between politics, administration, civil society, migrants, and businesses, as well as political and social conditions that foster such processes are needed to ensure the successful integration and participation of newcomers. With the “Land.Zuhause.Zukunft – Integration und Teilhabe von Neuzuwanderern in ländlichen Räumen” program, the Robert Bosch Stiftung supports counties and their diverse stakeholders in developing innovative and viable approaches for the integration and participation of newcomers to rural areas. During the pilot phase, which was completed in mid-2019, six counties developed different concepts in various areas. In 2020, the Robert Bosch Stiftung will include additional counties in its “Land.Zuhause.Zukunft” program. "Land.Zuhause.Zukunft" is a program of the Robert Bosch Foundation in cooperation with the University of Hildesheim.
