"As a progressive, forward-looking magazine, we at Focus see it as our duty to inform the German population as best we can about what's coming up and to provide orientation as to which topics and people will be on the global agenda in the coming year. It’s clear: Either we will find the way to a good future together or not at all. That's what the global challenges of Corona and climate change teach us: it depends on many."
Robert Schneider, editor-in-chief of Focus magazine
