Furthering Education, the Problem Solver #1

We believe in education. We believe that learning and knowledge make people more tolerant, more objective, and more understanding. In other words: we believe that education not only makes the world a better place but in the long term is the most effective way to achieve that goal.

This belief is reflected in our company motto, coined by Mark Twain:

Education: that which reveals to the wise, and conceals from the stupid, the vast limits of their knowledge.

Why Education?

A good education stimulates a child’s natural curiosity, the desire to learn and to discover the world. It enables us to reach our full potential, to challenge traditional viewpoints while at the same time better understanding them. In short: education makes us better humans – humans that strive to make the world a better place. Educated people have the means to do so. They have the necessary understanding of how the world works that is required to implement much-needed changes.

Education is the key to solving almost all of today’s pressing problems, including, but not limited to: climate change, poverty, diseases, inequality, nationalism, fundamentalism, and so on. There is simply no way around education. It is the only solution that works long-term.
