Dear Colleagues and Friends,
HAPPY NEW YEAR 2022!
2 years we are already biting into an important decade, where there is no time to loose. It started with a pandemic sedating most of the important turn-around tasks we all should be working on. “Wende” is the German word for turnaround. It became popular, when the wall came down in Berlin in 1989 and communist Germany was declared a historic failure and in that turn also many biographies of normal people living in the apparently wrong system. The ones successfully covering their history and became successful again in the Western system were named “Wendehälse” (Turn(-around) necks, or like the bird “wryneck”).
Today, the words of turnarounds are more popular than ever. We talk about “Verkehrswende” (Traffic turnaround) and “Energiewende” (Energy turnaround) just to mention some. When will the turnaround happen? What is our contribution to it? Will we be the wrynecks of tomorrow? Do we live in a world, where the bad tries to prevent to worse, or where the better overcomes to good? Will the coming generations blame us for a historical failure?
We are excited to be involved in at least two turnaround projects:
