With the Reinhard Mohn Prize 2018, Bertelsmann Stiftung seeks to highlight ways in which living together in cultural diversity can be productively shaped. Following the Reinhard Mohn Prize’s motto – to “learn from the world” – we launched an international research project looking for good examples of dealing with cultural diversity that could also be translated usefully to Germany. The first results of this research were the subject of an expert workshop in Berlin in July featuring around 20 specialists in the field from academia, politics, the business sector, the media and civil society. In addition to experts from Germany, specialists from Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Belgium and Israel also participated. The workshop participants together discussed strategies, projects and initiatives from 11 countries that combined the acknowledgment of cultural diversity with the goal of equal opportunities for participation.
