The German “School of the Future” demonstration retrofit project Solitude-Gymnasium was elected as one of 3 projects to be visited during an EU journalist tour to Stuttgart in April 2013. The tour was organised by the representation of the European Commission in Munich and offered interested journalists the possibility to visit three EU funded projects in the Stuttgart area. The Solitude-Gymnasium  was presented by school director Mr. Stegmüller and Dr. Jürgen Görres and Stephan Kempe from the Environmental Office of the City of Stuttgart.

Besides School of the Future, the other included projects were the project “Waldhaus in Hildrizhausen ” for disadvantaged children and families that is financially supported by the European Social Fund (ESF) and the environmental project “My Favourite River ” that is working on the re-naturalisation of a part of the Neckar River.
