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.

Since the 1980s, the “Blaue Krawane” (Blue Caravan) in Bremen has been promoting creative engagement and practical integration for individuals who have experienced mental health challenges. The Blaue Karawane’s approach intentionally employs Community Orientation – a holistic treatment concept that views the individual in the context of the social and spatial aspects of life.

Biodynamic agriculture to touch, feel, and participate in: that is what the Lernort Bauernhof (Learning Farm), part of Hofgut Oberfeld in Darmstadt, has been offering to all generations for 14 years. In this interview, Johannes Rehmann, director of education, talks about his team’s motivation, the farm’s sustainable education program, and inclusivity on the farm.


Since 2013, the Evangelische Schule Berlin Zentrum has been developing a new learning concept for upper school. The approach encourages students to independently determine their learning needs, thereby taking control of their own living environment and experiencing their actions as meaningful. A focus on interpersonal contact and individual experience contrasts with the increasing anonymization of teaching taking place elsewhere. The SAGST is a supporting partner of this journey to new shores.


Doctor in patient talk

To enable patients to take decisions, and assist the process of getting well holistically – those are two key concerns of anthroposophic medicine. In 2020 it celebrates its centenary. How patients experience this extension of traditional medicine is brought to light by new multimedia coverage, through select case histories.

The “Rotzfreche Spielmobil,” a mobile play bus, is a Darmstadt tradition. For over 30 years, the red and yellow bus has been driving to public squares to invite four- to fourteen-year-olds to enjoy fun and exercise in the open air.
