Greater Political Participation, Equality and Sustainability

The Millennium Development Goals are due to expire in 2015.They have formed the international agenda for improving people’sliving conditions for fifteen years. Several of the targets linked to theeight goals, such as halving extreme poverty, havealready been achieved. There has been little progress in other areas,such as secure jobs. While the old goalshave been helpful, they are too technical. They do not cover importantissues such as political participation and the rule of law.Ecologically compatible growth and lack of equality are alsonot given sufficient attention.

German "Energiewende" in Brazil

by Theresa Lieb, Correspondence Blog, "Europa und Wir" - Europe-Blog by the Journalist Academy

The Brazilians require and need a more intensive utilization of renewable energies in order to cover their growing demand for energy. While the Brazilian government is mainly concentrating on the enhancement of the economic growth, projects are at least realized with German funding and expertise.

Open Series

"In der Wesermarsch, aus aller Welt"

Workshop Moderationstraining

Zum Auftakt des dreijährigen Projektes "In der Wesermarsch, aus aller Welt!' fand am Freitag und Samstag, 18. und 19. August, in Brake ein Workshop über Kommunikationsstrategien statt. Das Herrmann-Ehlers-Bildungsforum Weser-Ems fördert das Projekt und gestaltete den Auftaktworkshop mit dem Projektteam.  Als Referent führte Dr. Thomas Thielen durch das Programm, bei dem es um Interview-Schulungen, Übungen zur Moderation von Gesprächen und operativ aufmerksame Kommunikation ging. 


In dem Projekt geht es um Lebensgeschichten sowohl junger als auch älterer Menschen, die filmisch aufgezeichnet, dokumentiert und öffentlich präsentiert werden. Dabei sollen Generationen in den Dialog treten - für eine vielfältige und offene Gesellschaft. Im ersten Workshop wurde das Projektteam für diese Interviewsituationen geschult. Teilnehmerinnen und Teilnehmer kamen aus der Wesermarsch und umzu, zudem nahmen Schülerinnen und Schüler der Zinzendorfschule  aus Tossens teil. In dem zeitägigen Workshop wurde kreativ in Einzel- und Gruppenarbeit, in Simulationen die Interviewsituation geübt. Nach dem Workshop geht es im Projekt weiter mit ersten Interviews.

Country Reports with a Difference

Research on “Education of people with disabilities” around the world

People with disabilities are also among the most marginalised groups in the education system, and not only in the so-called developing countries. In recent years, it has become clear that education is one of the key prerequisites for sustainable development. Not least, the 2030 Agenda, with its guiding principle of “Leaving no one behind”, calls on us to focus our attention on this issue - also and especially in our work abroad.


What is the situation regarding access to education in the various countries in which we are active? To what extent do people with disabilities have the same access opportunities as non-disabled people? What difficulties do people face, what hurdles do they have to overcome and how can we, as a foundation, contribute to giving people with disabilities equal access to (‘civic’) education and to our programmes?


Our publication series “Country Reports with a Difference” aims to report on the current state of access to education for people with disabilities. Our overseas offices research the situation and developments in various countries. Through our reports, we can raise awareness of the inequalities that unfortunately still too often exist and bring more attention to the issue of inclusion.

Event Reports

The Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung, its educational institutions, centres and foreign offices, offer several thousand events on various subjects each year. We provide up to date and exclusive reports on selected conferences, events and symposia at In addition to a summary of the contents, you can also find additional material such as pictures, speeches, videos or audio clips.
