From Dusseldorf I travelled by train to Gutersloh which is about 2 hours away. Gutersloh itself isn't much to look at, but the Bertelsmann Stiftung is impressive. It is philanthropic undertaking by Mohn, a media mogel.
My visit to the Stiftung allowed me the opportunity to meet with:
- Michael Sebarich (Assistant to the Board of Governors and responsibility for strategic direction)
- Eric Vacarro (Project Leader for International Network of Innovative Schools/SEIS)
- the SEIS team
- Uli Kober (Project Leader for Semi-Autonomous Schools project).
