Preserve
a democratic Europe

We believe
that the European idea is worth fighting for.

Complex problems such as the climate crisis, the negative consequences of globalization and a completely changed presence and use of media and information have led to fears and pessimism in many people. New trenches between east and west appear to be opening up. 

Simple solutions sound tempting but make the situation worse.We want to bring the best brains together with political decision-makers, promote public interest journalism and help shape the debate about a resilient, democratic, united Europe.
