Social development calls for critical reflection. This is a principle to which Kurt A. Körber felt bound both as a German and as a world citizen. The foundation established by him takes on this social challenge at a national and an international level.
Acting as an operating foundation, it develops and promotes programmes for which it retains full responsibility, while still remaining open to suggestions and cooperations. The aim of its work is to try out new ideas and methods and to transfer them to society. The Körber Foundation seeks to encourage others to take initiative into their own hands.
