#Zusammenland - Diversity makes us strong"

HFT Stuttgart takes part in new campaign against right-wing extremism!

DIE ZEIT, Handelsblatt, Süddeutsche Zeitung, Tagesspiegel, WirtschaftsWoche and Ströer are joining forces with around 500 companies, foundations and associations to set an example against right-wing extremism with their campaign "#Zusammenland - Vielfalt macht uns stark" (#Together - diversity makes us strong) and are committed to freedom, diversity and a welcoming culture. On 21 March 2024, the logo of Stuttgart University of Applied Sciences will be featured in DIE ZEIT magazine.

The campaign was launched by Rainer Esser (DIE ZEIT), Gabriel Grabner (Tagesspiegel), Christian Schmalzl (Ströer), Andrea Wasmuth (Handelsblatt Media Group) and Christian Wegner (Süddeutsche Zeitung). The managing directors are in agreement with the participating partners:

"Openness to the world, respect and community are values that make Germany not only a country worth living in, but also an economically strong one. That is why we stand together for an open country that courageously faces up to difficulties."

Dull populism? No thanks! The so-called "remigration" of our friends, neighbors and colleagues? Certainly not. And fascism? Never again! Germany does not need an alternative to freedom and diversity. We have learned from history and do not forget how inhumanity - at first secretly and cautiously, then oppressively and brutally - penetrated society. The present time demands a clear stance. We stand together for an open country that courageously faces up to the challenges instead of allowing itself to be inflamed and stirred up by right-wing propaganda. Because we already know where that leads. So, this year counts: Against hatred and division. For a new togetherness. Strong together in a diverse #Zusammenland.
