News & Events

Berliner Stiftungswoche​

This year, the organisers of the Berliner Stiftungswoche faced a special challenge. The programme mainly took place digitally. The topic of "A Question of Climate" is highly relevant and overall the event was super successful with over 80 foundations participating. Daniel took part in the kick-off event and talked about the foundation's beginnings as well as last year's projects. For those who missed it, you can view the recording of the event directly via the link.
