The projects we support are our windows onto the world.

   

What We Support

Project Insights

The goal of our public relations work is to make our current activities and exemplary projects more visible. That’s why the people and initiatives that we support take center stage, both in our print publications and on our website. Lighthouse projects both large and small are given a special place.

Here, we provide short updates that reveal current happenings among our projects. In addition, we present in-depth reports and interviews that create a vivid picture of the initiatives that our foundation is privileged to enable and support.

To make this possible, our public relations team visits many of the projects together with the responsible project managers and gets to know the organizations and people on location.

We hope that these reports, in text and image, help to orient engaged individuals regarding possible support from the Software AG Foundation (SAGST) – and encourage them to tread new paths.

A Luzern-based foundation provides young people in socially difficult life situations with security and stability. The organization’s name "Dreipunkt" is inspired by bouldering – rock climbing without ropes or a harness – where feelings of stability and security are essential.

The production chain of industrially produced foodstuffs is long, and for consumers often nontransparent. Very few people are aware that package foods may be subjected to x-ray quality control, which producers and retailers are not obligated to explicitly declare. This might be a mistake, as Dr. Uwe Geier explains in this interview.


Children running around on stage

At ACT e.V., young people learn how to direct their own lives. Recognition, communication, and participation as well as a common project goal play a central role in this educational initiative.
