The WaldWelten (Forest Worlds) in Eberswalde and the Science Forum at the Europaschule in Westerstede are examples of projects that strengthen education about the environment and democracy. Through our own unique initiatives, such as the Klaus von Klitzing Prize, the "EmergenSEAKit" learning kits for schools and the Helene Lange Prize for young female researchers in digitalisation, we provide inspiration and actively participate in shaping contemporary topics.
Our profile – Your projects
For the past two decades, the EWE Foundation has promoted social commitment and voluntary work as a way of bringing people together who are committed to their communities and share a sense of responsibility. As a support foundation, we focus our efforts on education, art and culture, as well as research and science, in the areas between the Ems, Weser, and Elbe rivers, in parts of Brandenburg, and on the island of Rügen.
Which projects, themes, and people are currently moving us and the foundation world? We provide insight into current funding projects and calls for proposals, present publications, and share information from our collaboration partners. Here, for example, you can find information about the "Step" exercise programme at primary schools or the "Freischwimmen21" initiative.
Our fields of activity
Is your commitment a piece of the puzzle in the creation of a sustainable, liveable society? Learn more about our five areas of impact: democracy education, social learning, science communication, STEM and environmental education, and cultural communication. If your ideas align with our profile, they will fill our areas of impact with life.
Our awards and collaborative projects spotlight current topics and encourage an exchange of ideas. The Helene Lange Prize is aimed at female scientists who are engaged in innovative and interdisciplinary digitalisation studies, while the annual Klaus von Klitzing Prize honours teachers who are strong advocates for the natural sciences.
