Since 2011, I have been supporting civic engagement with my Dr. Jürgen Rembold Foundation. The non-profit foundation based in Rösrath (Germany) wants to encourage citizens to take responsibility for the community.
It is not only since Corona that we have known that voluntary work is a supporting element in our society.
With the foundation I would like to encourage people and initiatives to become actively involved and take responsibility. The clearly defined purpose of the foundation allows for a variety of foundation activities. Projects and initiatives from a wide range of areas are supported, such as art and culture, education and training, youth and elderly care, science and research, and environmental and nature conservation.
The foundation’s work is a very personal topic for me. I take a lot of time to select projects and have never regretted an investment.
For me, the “Marktplatz Gute Geschäfte” is a prime example of civic involvement.
I was immediately impressed by the concept. The promise to support the “Marktplatz Gute Geschäfte” as main sponsor was therefore quickly given. Last year’s kick-off event was of great importance for the Rheinisch-Bergisch district. It builds a bridge between companies and civil society and can thus lead to more civic involvement overall.
As a personal fan of competitions, I have agreed to award prizes to the most fruitful and sustainable cooperation as an incentive. Even the Corona-related shift of the second marketplace does not change this promise and I hope that we can reward the most fruitful cooperation and projects with a special prize.
