Breaking with the past: A transformative coalition for the 2020s! News from Das Progressive Zentrum
The next German government has a historic opportunity to set a progressive agenda for the coming decade. Read our newsletter to find out what’s at stake. Plus: All the latest publications & news from Das Progressive Zentrum.
Germany’s New Path: Election Night 2021
On the occasion of the 2021 Bundestag election, Das Progressive Zentrum e.V. hosted the non-partisan “Great Election Night 2021” in the state representation of Rhineland-Palatinate.
On September 26th, German voters will decide on the future direction of the EU’s largest member state. Rarely has there been an election with such a striking opportunity to shape the social, economic, and ecological terms of German society. Although the race is still open, the chances are high that after 16 years of Chancellor Angela Merkel, Germany will soon be led by a new and progressive government. With such a seismic shift, it is not unreasonable to wonder: could this new era in Germany act as a catalyst for progressive politics across Europe?
The Politics of Tomorrow: Visionary and Effective As the year draws to a close, we ask what 2020 means for progressives and what 2021 will hold in store for us
Tomorrow’s policies must be both visionary and efficient to meet the challenges of the pandemic and its aftermath. Our board members Michael Miebach and Judith Siller and our executive director Dominic Schwickert explain why progressive ideas belong on the agenda right now and take an optimistic look at 2021.
