A strong case with a red handle, colourful letters that instantly get children’s attention and contents that really turn sustainably promoted education into a reality: crayons, a notepad, a glue stick and notebooks. The “My School Toolbox” will soon be a very big help to children attending school in Tanzania or Sri Lanka. About 2,000 school toolboxes will be sent to jointly supported school projects around the world. It is an effort that brought together the Peter Ustinov Foundation and the DER Touristik Foundation and fits perfectly into the work of the sustainability initiative “DER Welt verpflichtet” (Committed to the World).
The suitcase filled with school materials was presented on the “Green Carpet” during the Berlinale 2017 film festival. The more than 250 guests included members of the film and creative community like Iris Berben, Gesine Cukrowski, Dieter Landuris, Heinz Hoenig and Bettina Zimmermann. Social responsibility is one of their passions in life, and they made a selfie to express their support of the programme.
With the help of a selfie or photo, every person can now send a “My School Toolbox” on its way and take part in the campaign. You will find more information at: www.myschooltoolbox.org

DER Touristik ranked 13th in the category “gastronomy, hotels, entertainment, fitness and tourism” in a list compiled by the German magazine “Focus Business.” It was a ranking that put the company ahead of all other traditional tourism operations. The study, conducted from June to December 2016, was designed to find German companies where employees are particularly satisfied with their jobs.
The results were based on a survey of more than 18,000 employees in Germany that was conducted by the Statista research institute. The respondents answered 50 questions about the work environment, internal communications, remuneration, image and management style. The most important aspect of the questionnaire: Would the respondent recommend his or her job to friends and relatives?
The study was complemented by a user survey conducted on the social media platform Xing and by ratings of the identified companies on the Kununu platform.
Like DER Touristik, more than 1,000 best employers in 22 industries may now use the seal “FOCUS TOP National Employer”.
