Jens also takes an active role in fulfilling social responsibilities through his social connections. He deeply cares about the development of education in Shanghai, when serving as Chairman for almost 10 years of the Board of Trustees of the French School of Shanghai, and was instrumental for the establishment of the second joint French–German School Campus in Shanghai.
