Stiftung Mercator wants to make possible a comprehensive education and equal opportunities; to enhance the self-fulfilment of children, adolescents and young adults; to promote science and research relating to its objectives and areas of thematic focus in everyone’s interests; to support mutual understanding and exchange between people of different cultures; to commit itself to a unified Europe; to improve the social prerequisites for a peaceful coexistence of people of different backgrounds, convictions and social situations; and to preserve nature and the environment. Stiftung Mercator intends to achieve this by making possible positive examples of social progress; stimulating the imagination of all who bear a particular responsibility in politics and society; and giving  impetus, either on its own or in cooperation with partners, for the shaping of the future. Its activities should always be guided by quality, professionalism and transparency and subject to  public debate.
