Further details

The fall of the Berlin Wall 25 years ago was the beginning of the end of decades of a divided Europe. In its wake, European countries took the chance to unite in peace. This historic example shows what change is possible in Europe, especially if it is brought about by a common purpose – a fact more important than ever in light of current developments. Europe can only move forward together - both politically and economically, and especially when facing the challenges of globalisation and the digital revolution.

Speaker: Dr. Norbert Lammert, Christian Democratic Union / Christian Social Union (CDU/CSU) Social scientist, President of the German Parliament
