The students and staff at UWC Red Cross would like to express our delight that – after years of preparation – UWC Robert Bosch College in Freiburg is opening its doors on the 23rd of September 2014 as the 14th UWC College worldwide. Tove Veierød (Chair of UWC RCN) and Tom Gresvig (one of the founding team of UWC RCN) shall be attending the opening ceremony as representatives of our College. It is particularly exciting that a UWC College has been established in Germany – home to Kurt Hahn (1886-1974), the educational pioneer responsible for founding the UWC movement. We wish the first cohort of students and new members of staff (drawn from Germany and across the world) all the very best for the academic year ahead.
‘I regard it as the foremost task of education to insure the survival of these qualities: an enterprising curiosity, an undefeatable spirit, tenacity in pursuit, readiness for sensible self-denial, and above all, compassion.’ Kurt Hahn
