Leading up to the German elections, the Schwarzkopf Foundation is hosting “election dialogues” in Hamburg, Bochum and Berlin. During the events, first-time voters can approach the manifold topics and positions of the elections and have a space to discuss with one another as well as with “experts” from politics and society. Furthermore, European perspectives will be a focus of the events.

About 60 students from vocational schools each will develop their own ideas and demands after positioning themselves. These ideas will then be discussed with experts from parties’ youth organisations, refugee organisations and other personalities who are involved in several ways. Results of the events will be published as short videos, co-produced by participants, online.
