The gap between the rich and the poor also opens up in Germany. Political, economic and social contradictions collide and endanger social cohesion in our modern society. Although this cohesion is of such great importance for the stability of a community and democracy. The ZEIT Foundation Ebelin and Gerd Bucerius and the Veranstaltungsforum Holtzbrinck Publishing Group will address this issue with the series of events "What keeps our society together?". The issue will be discussed in three panel sessions on "Politics and Economy", "Culture and Education","Ethics and values".

The kick-off event deals with what politics and business can do to foster social cohesion. If the unconditional basic income is a viable idea for more social justice, we will soon look enviously to Finland in Germany. Or does the income has to be subject to conditions so that the individual's commitment to social cohesion is not harmed.

Topic "Digitization of Education. Democratization or Exclusion?", 31 May 2017

A few weeks ago, the writer and translator Mathias Énard demanded an eroticism of knowledge. This year's award winner of the Leipzig Book Prize on European Understanding considers this as a suitable means against the tendency towards isolation of our time. Is education actually the key to more social participation? Will we experience a democratization of knowledge, or will the division into "digital natives" and digital illiterates solidify? What can education contribute to social cohesion? Does the digitalisation of education lead to more social justice or does it deepen the educational injustice of our society?

Panellists of the discussion are

  • Dr. Diana Knodel, Co-founder of the initiative App Camps, Hamburg and guest professor, Technische Universität Berlin
  • Prof. Dr. Gesche Joost, Design Research Lab Universität der Künste Berlin and Internet Ambassador of Germany
  • Prof. Dr. Ralf Lankau, Fachbereich Medien, Hochschule Offenburg

Moderation: Ulrich Blumenthal, Managing Editor "Forschung aktuell", Deutschlandfunk
