About Noah

Noah has been supporting Das Progressive Zentrum since April 2022, first as an intern and now as a project aisstant. His studies in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam focused on political philosophy and social power relations. In his bachelor thesis, he critically related experiences of distancing and insecurity during the coronavirus pandemic to Hannah Arendt’s concept of the vita activa. Besides this, he advocates against gender-based violence and for positive masculinities, as an ambassador for the ItStartsHere. In this context, he regularly organizes and facilitates workshops to encourage conversations on the topic amongst men.

We develop and debate progressive ideas and bring together leading actors who turn thoughts into action. Our think tank’s goal: making the just transformation a reality. ▸ Learn more
