The berlin conference on
freedom and responsibility

save the date: 28 & 29 September 2020

Berlin stands for freedom, courage and tolerance. We believe our dynamic city should act as a strong voice in tackling the most pressing issues of our time – revitalising our social values, and welcoming people from far and wide. Q BERLIN provides a space to share these global perspectives, disrupt, inspire, and tear down walls to shape the future we want to live in.
