„Rarely has it been so clear: Humanity and its planet need change. For peace and freedom. For the environment and climate. For equal opportunities and social balance“, says Uwe Jean Heuser, jury chairman of the Helmut-Schmidt-Zukunftspreis (Helmut Schmidt Future Prize). For this reason, the three partners – the Bundeskanzler-Helmut-Schmidt-Stiftung, Die Zeit and The New Institute – have initiated the Helmut-Schmidt-Zukunftspreis in 2022, an award that will from now on be presented annually to an international personality for their innovative achievements in the fields of democracy, society and technology.
The second Helmut-Schmidt-Zukunftspreis was awarded on 4th May 2023 at the Thalia Theater Hamburg. An event in German and English language.
