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 series of events started in 2017.

Topic "The language of Music. Inclusvie or Exclusive - 16 May 2018

Music is an important "place" of meeting, interacting, understanding and of course listening together. How inclusive or exclusive can music be? What impact does the importance of music, artists and their works have on the cohesion of society?

Panelists

Michael Barenboim, violinist and leader of the chamber music department, Barenboim-Said Akademy
Stefan Schmidt, pianist and leader of the Straßenchor Berlin (street choir Berlin)
Sokee, rap musician

Moderation: Nadine Kreutzer

 

Topic "Attitude and Firmness. Tomorrow's or Yesterday's Qualities?" - 31 January 2018

Society as a whole needs nurturing, but can this be implemented in a society with strong individual characters and their interests? We also want to investigate the question of violence in society and what joint connective forces exist that can counteract violence - be it verbal or physical.

Panelists

Titus Dittmann, social entrepreneur and founder skate-aid
Gyde Jensen, youngest female member of the German Bundestag
Prof. Dr. Norbert Lammert, former president of the German Bundestag and chairman of the Konrad-Adenauer-Foundation

Moderation: Evelyn Seibert, Correspondent SWR of ARD-Hauptstadtstudio
