Denk ich an Deutschland Conference 2017
The many faces of Europe – from war to peace: the Alfred Herrhausen Gesellschaft and Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung held its ninth joint „Denk ich an Deutschland“ (When I think of Germany) conference
This is Europe’s hour: what does Germany have to tackle now? Politicians and representatives from the world of politics, economy, science, civil society and culture spent a day discussing this at the ninth Denk ich an Deutschland (When I think of Germany) conference.
The day started with three very different, yet equally passionate pro-European contributions by Christian Lindner (Free Democratic Party - FDP), Hanno Burmester (Das Progressive Zentrum) and Daniel Röder (Pulse of Europe). In his speech, Lindner referred to a historic opportunity: “Europe must not miss out on this rendezvous with history for a second time,” he said about Emmanuel Macron’s proposal for a European Defence Union, which France had previously rejected.
