We look forward to celebrating 25 years of Stiftung Mercator with you - the people who have accompanied and inspired us during this time, with whom we have discussed and worked together, and whom we have been able to support in their development, their work or their projects!

We have stayed in touch with alumni for many years, and together with you we would like to celebrate the 25th anniversary and look into the future of our foundation's activities!

Digital salon series on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of Stiftung Mercator

We therefore cordially invite you to our anniversary salons this year in October 2021, focusing on the topics of Digital Society, Europe in the World, Climate Action, and Participation and Cohesion. They represent the major thematic areas that we have placed at the center of our foundation's commitment in the coming years with our Mercator 2025 strategy.

We look forward to engaging in an exchange with Mojib Latif, Francesca Bria, Jill Lepore, Armin Nassehi and alumni from the Mercator Foundation network.

Time for a Reunion

We would have loved to invite you to a central birthday party, but unfortunately COVID19 still throws a spanner in the works. But we will celebrate anyway!
Come and join us at a social reunion and exchange in regional Alumni Meet-Ups. The first meetings already took place recently in the Ruhr area and in Berlin, more are to follow (if circumstances allow).

For this, we are looking forward to your ideas, initiative and support. You would like to organize a Mercator Alumni Meet-Up in your region? Then contact us for further information (alumni[at]stiftung-mercator.de).

We are looking forward to meeting again!
