It is our pleasure to invite YOU as a former participant of the Drucker Challenge to submit an essay and/or upload a video. Just check whether you have completed your 35 years in the meantime, please!

This year's theme "Lost in Digital Wonderland - Finding a Path in the Global Knowledge Society" has emerged from a quote by Lewis Carroll in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland:

"Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?"
"That depends a good deal on where you want to get to," said the Cat.
"I don't much care where-" said Alice.
"Then it doesn't matter which way you go," said the Cat.
"-so long as I get SOMEWHERE," Alice added as an explanation.
"Oh, you're sure to do that," said the Cat, "if you only walk long enough."
