The activities in the Inspiring Change programme are infused with the conviction that an enthusiasm to experiment and courage to take risks are crucial for the future sustainability of society. In clearly defined thematic areas, we want to enable changes that encourage others to follow, for example in developing and organising local education hubs, effective teaching in higher education, or contemporary concert events. For this, we look for trailblazers with new ideas and ideas off the beaten track. We also put great emphasis on carefully selecting the topics addressed, in order to enable impact and change with finite resources.
