The New Unknown - Navigating Zeitenwende. This year’s Q BERLIN focuses on our current moment of Zeitenwende, a period of global unknowns. Profound shifts in global dynamics, an ongoing war in Europe, a pandemic spanning more than two years, a looming energy and economic crisis and increasing pressure to accelerate the green transition – all contribute to the state of crisis that defines the world we live in now. This is a historical turning point, and global metropolises are at the heart of the issue. Can we use crises as change agents for the good? How can we work towards global cohesion and solidarity? How can we defend our democracies in a world of fake news and propaganda?

PROGRAM 2022 | The New Unknown - Navigating Zeitenwende

This year’s Q BERLIN focuses on our current moment of Zeitenwende, a period of global unknowns. Profound shifts in global dynamics, an ongoing war in Europe, a pandemic spanning more than two years, a looming energy and economic crisis and increasing pressure to accelerate the green transition – all contribute to the state of crisis that defines the world we live in now. This is a historical turning point, and global metropolises are at the heart of the issue. The global metropoles are in the focus: Can we use crises as change agents for the good? How to work on global cohesion and solidarity? How to defend our democracies in a world of fake news and propaganda?

Democracies in Danger – On Free Speech, Propaganda & Fake News

Cities like Berlin are liberal centers and drivers of innovation in research, business and culture. Tolerance and freedom of speech are the foundation of our democracy. How can we identify fake news and propaganda, and what tools do we have to protect our societies from them?
