The civil law partnership is represented by Konrad Kutt and his wife Gabriele Kutt.

The purpose of the Institute is to promote sustainable development, in particular in vocational education and training, through research, model developments, networking, consultancy, design and other appropriate measures.

The Institute was founded on the initiative of Konrad Kutt following his many years of work at the Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training (Bonn). There, he was responsible for setting up the main focus of work on vocational education and training for sustainable development. This included pilot projects, a cross-sectional vocational project on sustainable forest management, the initiation of the “Model Region Berlin Forest and Wood”, the establishment of a good-practice agency with an Internet presence, the moderation of the Federal Working Group on Vocational Education and Training for Sustainable Development (2004-2006) with further activities within the framework of the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development.

Actual Focus in Berlin

Setup of a network specially for Berlin with varying specialist and ultidisciplinary focus on implementation in step with actual practise and didactic and methodic integration of the concept of sustainable development in occupational education and training.

Understanding sustainable development

Sustainable development is understood to mean the creation and maintenance of future viability with the most balanced possible consideration of economic competitiveness, ecological compatibility and social as well as global justice.
is understood. The competences required for this are acquired in the various areas of education. They become effective above all in professional practice and the associated competence in work and leisure as well as in entrepreneurial thinking and action.

In addition to individual competence development, INBAK Berlin also aims at sustainable development in companies and administrations and thus at organisational, technical as well as cultural developments. In this context, the inclusion of the cultural sector, the development of cultural and intercultural competence is considered indispensable.

Sustainability and culture

In a special way, a connection of sustainability in occupation and work with the cultural and creative sector should be created. The cultural professions already account for a significant share of gainful employment and value creation, and at the same time cultural activity is playing an increasingly important role in the context of non-gainful employment. Sustainable development and the competence development necessary for it require problem solutions that are more and more oriented towards the resource of creativity.

INBAK therefore wants to actively include different genres of art (painting, music, literature, science), for example by facilitating discussions and encounters in smaller circles and events.

All activities together:

Sustainable Book BoXX

For more than ten years, the Sustainable Book BoXX project has been an outstanding example in which many aspects of sustainability and education, but also culture, civil society and participation come together.

International relations

The Institute strives for international cooperation and exchange between those involved in the educational process. For sustainable development, this change of perspective is increasingly important at the level of learners as well as in the field of research.

Examples include the European projects in cooperation with Norway, Iceland and Denmark (Negative Body Image) as well as bilateral projects with France, Poland and Slovenia.

Cooperation and networks

INBAK is linked to various training providers, vocational schools, company-based and inter-company training centres, state authorities and associations within the framework of diverse projects. This results in a variety of synergy effects, funding and transfer opportunities. Overview of selected logos
