The 2017 conference took place under the auspices of the German Commission for UNESCO. Besides the Siemens Stiftung, as the main cooperation partner, implementation support was provided by the German Federal Foreign Office and the Robert Bosch Stiftung.

The first conference took place within the framework of Berlin Science Week, which was linked to the "Falling Walls" conference for the first time.

For the 2019 conference, we are continuing our collaboration with the Siemens Stiftung. The other partners have also expressed interest in supporting the initiative.

Under the patronage of: German Commission for UNESCO

The German Commission for UNESCO (DUK), based in Bonn, is a National Commission established under Article VII of the UNESCO Constitution, and is thus the link between Germany and UNESCO. It acts as an intermediary of foreign cultural and educational policy, and is supported by the Foreign Office. Its members reflect the broad spectrum of institutions and associations active in Germany in UNESCO’s areas of competence: education, science, culture and communication. It advises the Federal Government, Parliament and all other public bodies on UNESCO issues and coordinates the contribution of German experts and civil society to the drafting of UNESCO’s programmes and norms. The DUK is responsible for providing information on UNESCO’s areas of work and supports the implementation of its programmes.

Federal Foreign Office

With its offices in Berlin and Bonn and a network of around 230 missions abroad, the Federal Foreign Office maintains Germany’s relations with other countries as well as with international and supra-national organisations. This work concerns much more than just political contacts among governments and parliaments. Because Germany and German society are enmeshed in ever-growing international networks, the Federal Foreign Office promotes intensive interaction and exchange with the world in the fields of business, culture, science and technology, the environment, development issues and many more areas.

Robert Bosch Stiftung

The Robert Bosch Stiftung is one of Europe’s largest foundations associated with a private company. In its charitable work, it addresses social issues at an early stage and develops exemplary solutions. To this purpose, it develops and implements its own projects. Additionally, it supports third-party initiatives that have similar goals.

The Robert Bosch Stiftung is active in the areas of health, science, society, education, and international relations.

Moreover, in the coming years, the Foundation will increasingly direct its activities on three focus areas:

- Migration, Integration, and Inclusion
- Social Cohesion in Germany and Europe
- Sustainable Living Spaces

Since it was established in 1964, the Robert Bosch Stiftung has invested more than 1.4 billion euros in charitable work.
