In the issue on September 16th and 17th, prominent figures from politics, business, and society will explore potential developments in artificial intelligence, and climate change.
On August 1st, WELT AM SONNTAG celebrated its 75th anniversary. In its anniversary edition on the weekend of September 16th and 17th, Germany's leading Sunday newspaper looks ahead to the next 75 years and delves into the pressing questions of the present and future.
Since its first issue on August 1st, 1948, WELT AM SONNTAG has been describing the world as it is, not as it should be. Over 75 years, WELT AM SONNTAG has undergone constant change but has always remained true to its principles: journalistic excellence, exclusive reporting, and a commitment to fostering debates. WELT AM SONNTAG has remained curious and will continue to be so in the future.
Carolin Hulshoff Pol, CEO of WELT Group, stated, "WELT AM SONNTAG is the paramount weekend read for discerning readers. It embodies outstanding journalistic expertise and consistently surprises with compelling investigative stories from the realms of business and politics. For 75 years, WELT AM SONNTAG has successfully maintained this distinctive blend of unwavering competence and innovative prowess. In doing so, we provide Germany's decision-makers with both reading pleasure and essential insights during their private and leisurely weekends. This is the enduring commitment that WELT AM SONNTAG will continue to uphold in the future!"
Dagmar Rosenfeld, Editor-in-Chief of WELT AM SONNTAG, expressed, "I am happy to align with Albert Einstein: 'I am more interested in the future than in the past because that's where I intend to live.' These words wonderfully describe what makes WELT AM SONNTAG unique: the past has shaped it, but it is defined by the future."
For the anniversary edition of WELT AM SONNTAG, personalities from politics, business, sports, society, and culture were asked to provide insights into the future. They pondered questions like: What will the state of climate change be in 75 years? What about artificial intelligence? And what would they do if they were still in the world 75 years from now? Among those contributing are US entrepreneur Bill Gates, ECB President Christine Lagarde, EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, and US writer T.C. Boyle.
Taking an international perspective on present-day Germany, journalists from The Economist, The Wall Street Journal, and The Jerusalem Post contribute to the anniversary edition of WELT AM SONNTAG. A guest article from Gazeta Wyborcza sheds light on the Polish-German relationship in times of the Russian war against Ukraine. Ukrayinsky Tyzhden reports on a former colleague who went to the front lines to defend his country and is now missing, illustrating the harrowing uncertainty that thousands of Ukrainian families are living with today.
Also featured in the edition is a major interview with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz conducted by Editor-in-Chief Dagmar Rosenfeld and Deputy WELT Editor-in-Chief Robin Alexander.
The WELT AM SONNTAG anniversary edition will be available in stores on September 16th and 17th.
Exclusive to WELT AM SONNTAG's 75th anniversary, Australian artist Gretta Louw has created the hybrid artwork "Portal" - a combination of an NFT and an analog poster. This work will be available in a limited edition of 512 pieces on the Verse platform starting from September 29, 2023.
