EduAction - Bildungsgipfel der Metropolregion Rhein-Neckar
On 25 and 26 October 2018, Metropolregion Rhein-Neckar GmbH will host the second "EduAction" education summit in Mannheim. The national lead conference is aimed at all players in the education sector: pupils, students, representatives of schools and universities, but also innovators and practitioners from industry, associations, foundations and local authorities. During this conference, the educational strategy of the Rhine-Neckar metropolitan region will be discussed in interactive formats such as impulse lectures, workshops, best practices and courses, and solutions for the expansion of future-oriented education will be worked out jointly. FUCHS PETROLUB SE supports the education summit for the second time.
More than 72,000 students support the non-profit organization Enactus and pursue a common goal: to create economic perspectives for socially disadvantaged people. The team of the University of Mannheim implements the theoretical knowledge in independent projects directly related to the Rhine-Neckar metropolitan region. Through Enactus, FUCHS PETROLUB SE, together with students and social institutions, is committed to a better future for our society.
More and more people are suffering from overweight and secondary diseases such as diabetes mellitius. This trend is already evident in childhood. In order to promote a health-conscious lifestyle at an early age, the project „Abenteuer Essen – Frühkindliche Ernährungsbildung in der Metropolregion Rhein-Neckar“ was launched in 2014. FUCHS PETROLUB SE supports this project in order to strengthen the health awareness of citizens in the Rhine-Neckar metropolitan region.
