non nobis Book from Werner Sobek

non nobis – About Building in the Future

We are not born for ourselves alone, we do not act for ourselves alone: what we decide and do as a society today reaches far beyond our own horizon, has an impact far into the future. In order to do justice to our common responsibility, we need cleanly researched facts and a precise presentation of the connections that exist between these facts. Only in this way can knowledge emerge.
