Mission accomplished: HeDu wins the IHK Education Award 2018



HeDu convinced in Berlin. The institution which operates nationwide had targeted more than hundred companies from which a total of 3 finalists were nominated in 4 categories. A film team visited each finalist in advance to create a portrait of the respective concepts and commitment.

These short films were shown for the first time at the award ceremony in Berlin. Afterwards, the winners were selected by approximately 300 IHK delegates in a live vote via a Ted procedure. In the face of fierce competition, our HeDu project finally won 58 percent of the votes and therefore came first in the category of medium-sized companies. Our Berlin delegation was thrilled to receive the award.

This nationwide prize is awarded every 2 years and makes us very proud: This award is important recognition for the work carried out in various projects that have been successfully completed over the last 9 years as part of this cooperation. It is of great importance what the trainees of HeDu achieve and what opportunities this cooperation offers the two companies.

“A great thing, not only for the two companies, but for our entire region” – said Rita Schwarzelühr Sutter (SPD), Parliamentary State Secretary in the Federal Environment Ministry.
