Sustainability is a key issue of our work. We consider this to cover social affairs as well. Werner Sobek therefore takes on responsibility for our society – that is why we regularly support social, cultural, and educational activities. Among these activities are art projects such as “Drei Klafter in 4/4”, a manual for the German first-aid organization Johanniter-Unfallhilfe, the Special Olympics Baden-Württemberg, the IABSE Young Engineers Conference in Bochum or the traditional summer fest of civil engineering students at the University of Stuttgart. Among the not-for-profit organizations Werner Sobek has supported regularly and for many years are the Association for the Promotion of Lightweight Structures, the Association for the promotion of Architecture, Engineering and Design in Stuttgart (aed) as well as the Stuttgart Institute of Sustainability (SIS).
