Climate & Energy

Climate protection needs ambitious policies. We report on the status of national climate protection plans and their implementation. We moderate national and international dialogues between science, politics, and civil society that advance our thinking about climate protection and energy transition.


The European migration and asylum system has been stuck in a deadlock for years. As the European Union does not sufficiently protect the human rights of migrants and fails to fulfill its humanitarian due diligence, there is a need for sustainable, fast, and agile solutions. We understand ourselves as an incubator for innovative approaches in EU migration policy and offer a platform for collaborative processes and projects.


What does democracy mean today? And how can trust in democratic structures be restored? At a time when intellectuals are predicting the end of democracy as we know it and elected politicians are trying to undermine the democratic system from within, effective answers to these questions are more urgent than ever. 

Urban Development

Cities are incubators for social change. Local neighborhoods often become learning spaces for social, cultural, technical, and economic innovations. We are convinced that on-site participation not only leads to sustainable urban developments but also creates a trusting culture of discussion and cooperation across projects.
