Since 2001, the ZEIT-Stiftung Ebelin and Gerd Bucerius, in cooperation with the Heinz Nixdorf Stiftung, has organized a two-week event for 55-60 young professionals from around the world. Their aim has been to foster leadership in “high potentials” by involving them in an international dialogue on current, political, economic and social questions. The original idea was based on the strong belief that what had worked for transatlantic relations in the 1960s with Henry Kissinger’s famous International Summer Seminar at Harvard University would be equally useful in the post-Cold War era during a time of shifting global power patterns and new worldwide challenges. This Technical Note summarizes the Keynote Address given by former Chancellor Helmut Schmidt on ‘Challenges Associated with the 21st Century’; as well as, selected workshop discussions that were held in Germany from August 3-7, 2008. The working group in which the author was selected to participate was “The Rise of China and India”. While our time was limited for discussion, the following synopsis attempts to glean the main points that emerged during the session.
