We started to stick our head out again, like some of the ZWAR „outdoor“ groups. We meet in a small group outside on the porch of a ZWAR-member’s house – keeping with the recommendations of our Corona-scientists. No subject set for this event – we are realizing that we NEVER have a problem finding things to discuss. Mostly we are saving the world …. and we often do not finish at the hour mentioned here. But we try.

In preparation we will watch this recent broadcast by WDR5, where some opinions were shared on this subject (By the way, we can recommend this broadcast for other audiences as well. It is very captivating and offers numerous  interesting perspectives on the subject)

„Europa ist keine geografische Größe“

In einem WDR 5 Spezial diskutiert die Politikwissenschaftlerin Ulrike Guérot mit den Schriftstellern Navid Kermani und Gila Lustiger über kulturelle Vielfalt und die europäische Identität. Schnell wird klar: Europa ist mehr als nur Ländergrenzen.
