Trip to Leipzig June 8-9, 2024
Two days with networking, barcamp, sightseeing and just good mood
«Zug um Zug Demokratie» is a project that creates a space where participants can talk about sensitive topics, share opinions and discuss each other's positions, even if they are radically different. We aim to overcome black and white thinking and the polarization of society.

We are inviting 50 participants to take part in our trip. To be one of them, we ask you to carefully fill out an application form to be selected. If you are one of the lucky participants, travel, accommodation and program will be free for you. Otherwise, you can participate in each phase of the program at your own expense.
