Fertile soils are an existential basis of life for us humans and the entire ecosystem. But this basis is increasingly under threat: 24 billion tons of fertile soil are lost every year. Markus Vogt, Chairman of our Scientific Advisory Board, outlines ten commandments for soil protection from the ethical perspective of a theology of creation.

Our inner peace is increasingly strained. How we deal with climate change, digital transformation and migration, and whether we generate and distribute prosperity sustainably, will be decisive for a prosperous, peaceful coexistence. We propose that the economic order of Germany, the Social Market Economy, might be best suited for securing social peace and sustainable development in the 21st century – not only in Germany across all party lines, but everywhere in the world. As a form of responsibly regulated capitalism, it has a proven track record of ensuring that people live well.
