Conference for the immediate present

Berlin questions is an annual, multi-day conference and a platform for transdisciplinary dialogue - providing ideas for structural change and collective action. Since 2017, the conference has made Berlin a home for debate, inviting politicians, journalists and artists from all over the world to address topics of global importance. This year's edition of Berlin questions, "Metropolis: The New Now," is dedicated to global challenges and (municipal) solutions to "re-evaluate, re-assess and re-start" cities after the coronavirus pandemic. It will focus on the future of the metropolis and will be hosted by Michael Müller, Governing Mayor of Berlin, from 11-14 August 2021. This year, Berlin questions will take place in hybrid format: both online and live at various locations in Berlin. Experience the conference in several different ways besides being there in person: via livestream or via cutting-edge VR technology that makes it possible to enter the conference locations in a 3D environment. The conference will cover several deep dive topics in different formats, such as dialogues, panels, keynotes or short "video flashes." In increasingly complex times, we need spaces reserved for dialogue, where today's most pressing questions can be discussed in order to provide a sense of direction. Berlin questions is such a space.
