Institute for Political Education

Political education is one of the core missions of the Hanns Seidel Foundation and an important prerequisite for the stability of our democracy, which is based on the rule of law and which requires on-going efforts to explain its principles. The primary objective of our political work is to provide civic education based on Christian values and to guide as many citizens as possible towards participating in our society in a well-informed and dedicated manner.

Seminars and events

In almost 1,500 seminars and events at our Education Centers in Wildbad Kreuth, at the Banz Monastery, at our Conference Center Munich and across the country, the Hanns Seidel Foundation has provided information and imparted competencies with regard to many topics which are essential for participating in institutions and society. Approximately 53,000 citizens have attended these events, and we are particularly delighted that school seminars and lectures by the Hanns Seidel Foundation are equally popular with teachers and students. They also include the prize DIE RAUTE for school magazines, which was awarded for the first time in 2010. Around 200 school magazines from all types of secondary schools around the country participated in this competition.
