The Federal Foreign Office supports the M100 Sanssouci Colloquium!

“The European Union is much more than merely a single market – above all, it is a community of values. We Europeans share values such as fundamental rights, democracy and the rule of law and work together to defend them at home and abroad – this is what makes us strong. The answer to the challenges of the rapidly changing world of the 21st century can only be European. Even the largest country is too small, if it is alone, but together we all benefit from each other.”

Martin Kotthaus, Director General European Affairs, Federal Foreign Office, Germany

Dr. Tobias Endler – a participant at M100SC – deals with the transatlantic relations and the effects of 9/11

“The world witnesses how Donald Trump turns democratic exchange into a wrestling match, at home as well as on the global stage. The vehemence of his attacks makes bridges across the Atlantic crumble. However, the stone has actually already cracked decades ago. It is now more important than ever before to build new bridges beyond the established political institutions: online connected forums for experts, cross-border media co-operations, think-tanks with international workforce– why not privately financed? Trump’s wrestling lasts four years, the transatlantic dialogue extends far beyond.”

A big thank you to Agentur Medienlabor for the wonderful new website!

Daniel Wetzel, Managing Director Agentur Medienlabor, Potsdam

Gabor Steingart about the M100 Sanssouci Colloquium

“At the M100 Sanssouci Colloquium you can meet foreign colleagues that you usually would not meet. This gives us a different impression about the situation in Europe – about countries such as Ukraine or Romania, for instance, where German journalists usually do not travel.”

Gabor Steingart, Publisher “Handelsblatt”, Germany

 

Thank you for the support, Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg!

“In times of a crumbling Europe and increasing censorship on the one hand as well as Fake News and hate speech on the other hand, it is particularly important that we take a stand for freedom of press and opinion. We have to take care that new audiovisual platforms will not be misused as instruments for demagogues. The Medienboard supports the M100 Sanssouci Colloquium in order to promote a journalistic exchange on the European level and to discuss modern conditions for a democratic, tolerant and cosmopolitan society.”

Helge Jürgens, Managing Director of Media Development, Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg
