PROGRAM PARTNERS

Our partnerships with external institutions and organizations enrich and inspire our work. Learn more about the current programs and partnerships – and perhaps become a cooperation partner yourself.

Partners for our CAS program

Our students’ social commitment and engagement in local projects is an integral part of the curriculum at UWC Robert Bosch College. We cooperate with 26 institutions and groups in and around Freiburg, ranging from care homes, kindergartens and shelters for the homeless to community gardens and schools. Through this cooperation and exchange, we try to create mutual learning experiences. While institutions benefit from the support of young adults from different backgrounds, our students improve their social skills by taking care of others and getting out of their comfort zone and into the Freiburg community.

A focus has been put on the work with and support of refugees in Freiburg: together with a local union (Bürgerverein Oberwiehre-Waldsee), UWC Robert Bosch College has established projects in nearby refugee shelters, such as a women’s café, child care activities and a buddy program.

 

European Environment Foundation

Once a year, the European Environment Foundation based in Freiburg organizes the International Convention of Environmental Laureates (ICEL), gathering around 100 winners of prestigious environmental prizes in our ‘green city’ for a few days. And each year, the laureates visit UWC Robert Bosch College for the Young Talents Day to share their experiences with environmental activism and sustainability with students from the Freiburg area, from our College and from Freiburg University.

Carl-Schurz-Haus

The Carl-Schurz-Haus in Freiburg is a binational cultural center organizing around 250 events each year focusing on current cultural and political topics in the USA. As a meeting place for people interested in the U.S., it offers lectures, workshops and literary readings with American and German experts. Since 2015, events have also taken place at UWC Robert Bosch College and in collaboration with our students, for example the event ‘My Digital Revolution’, organized together with the business network bwcon, and focusing on topcis around society, work and politics in the digital era. Guests speaker and panelists included the Head of Sales at Google Germany John Gerosa or German publicist Anke Domscheit-Berg.
