49th St. Gallen Symposium "Capital for Purpose": 8–10 May 2019


Ria & Arthur Dietschweiler Foundation

Enhancing the symposium as a St. Gallen initiative.

The Ria & Arthur Dietschweiler Foundation is a St. Gallen-based organisation with a strong will to advance the region of St. Gallen in the fields of education, culture and society. The foundation is known and respected as a future-oriented actor and was founded by Ria and Arthur Dietschweiler who were successful entrepreneurs in food wholesale with companies in Munich and St. Gallen.

As the foundation is committed to education, the next generation and the positive perception and progress of the St. Gallen area the collaboration with the St. Gallen Symposium is of strong mutual interest.

With the support of the Dietschweiler Foundation the results and findings of the symposium will be presented and discussed in the first St. Gallen Symposium Public Forum on 28 May 2018 in Einstein Congress. Also, the foundation helps to expand on research of the St. Gallen Foundation for International Studies and to access and develop the ideas of the next generation in the annual student essay competition St. Gallen Wings of Excellence Award.

We are grateful for the generous support and convinced about the positive effect for both, the next generation and the St. Gallen area. The support caters to a strong basis for cross-generational solutions and positive impact for our globe.
