Our topics

Health and prevention

Nearly 684 million people worldwide suffer from malnutrition. Many people in poorer countries have poor or no access to drinking water and sanitation. Geography and wealth play the central role: the countries with the lowest life expectancy are all on the African continent.

Education and future

Education is something many people take for granted. It is simply there. More than 263 million children and young people worldwide have no access or right to education.

Climate and nature protection

Climate change is on everyone's lips. Forest dieback, rising temperatures, melting glaciers, too much rain in some places, too little rain and fires in others. We have to do something - and we have to do it now!
