Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all those other forms that have been tried – Winston Churchill

Prefer constructive debate and solutions over angry arguments? Then let’s meet up and celebrate democracy. Even if we sometimes feel that our voice doesn’t count, exchanging ideas, supporting our values and motivating others is essential. Let’s discuss issues we care about – whether we’re from Germany, Europe, or elsewhere on Earth.

This group isn’t about winning arguments but about learning from each other. So let’s make this productive. We'll start with presentations and discussions. Later, we can build on this and explore options for film screenings, meetings with experts and policy folks, or jointly participate in other activities.

Diversity’s a plus
This group isn’t about any particular political affiliation. Let’s celebrate democracy by appreciating diverse ideas. Much of our focus is going to be on Germany, but international perspectives are a big plus.

Let’s make this fun
Policy topics can be fun as long as we keep a curious and open mind.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
