WHAT KIND OF FUTURE AWAITS US? AND HOW CAN WE SHAPE IT TOGETHER?
THE HERTIE SUMMIT IN BERLIN FROM 3 TO 4 JUNE 2021
Among our Fellows, you will find people who are conducting research in the natural sciences, experts in the fields of politics, law and economics, people who create works of art and people who explore the world from the perspective of the humanities and cultural studies. As different as their disciplines and fields of activity may be, they all have one thing in common: they all strive to ensure that we can live together better as a democratic society. They work to strengthen cohesion and they take on responsibility. The Summit agenda is set by the Fellows themselves. This unique format allows them to create a space where new encounters can take place and where current topics can be discussed. At the same time, they provide a forum for innovations that aim to not only advance our society, but also bring it together.
The coronavirus pandemic perfectly demonstrates how important this approach is. Reflecting on the months of distancing, polarisation and worry we have all been through, we decided that our motto for the Hertie Summit 2021 would be: “More than just living together: pulling together”.
