The future has already started. Not everywhere yet.
The The Next Society Foundation sees itself as a pioneer for the confrontation with our own future. Wherever possible, it initiates appropriate initiatives or intensifies existing activities.
It brings together entrepreneurs, artists, scientists and executives who see themselves as socio-political activists: people whose interests are the active ones Design and renewal of social connections is. For this target group, the foundation wants to be a source of inspiration and home port at the same time. It sees itself not only as a kind of "third place", where ideas are further developed beyond existing particular interests and central questions are deepened.
The question „above or below the algorithm“ is becoming more and more a decisive waymarking for our society. Who determines and shapes the rules of our future? And what is the impact of all the abstract algorithms that begin to dominate our lives and everyday lives without us noticing?
The foundation has set itself the goal of making its own contribution to education here. And with the help of tools that allow people to actively shape the "Data-Driven Transformation" of our everyday lives.
For this purpose, the foundation is networked with accomplices, who also work on effective strategies of change and also follow their words with deeds.
Dr. Bernhard Krusche is managing director of the foundation. As an ethnologist, organizational consultant and author, he has been dealing with questions of the innovative capacity of organizations and their management in the context of digitization and value change for almost 20 years.
Thomas Sattelberger was a manager in four Dax 30 companies, including nearly 15 years in board functions at Deutsche Telekom, Continental and Lufthansa. His urge to change for a more equitable next society continues unabated today.
