Our 2013 Annual Report documents what was an eventful year at the Bertelsmann Stiftung. The high point was the awarding of the Reinhard Mohn Prize to Kofi Annan in recognition of his longstanding efforts in the area sustainability. In addition to providing information on the award, the 2013 report examines the many aspects of our project work. Among other topics, it profiles the winners of the 2013 NEUE STIMMEN International Singing Competition. It also examines challenges and innovative approaches in the area of nursing care, as well as efforts in the German educational system to ensure that every young person is given the chance to succeed.
