Denk ich an Deutsch­land con­feren­ce 2016

Only if we gain back our ability to take strategic decisions we can cope with the mammoth task currently confronting us.

“Deutschland 2025 – Haben wir’s geschafft?” is the title of the "Denk ich an Deutschland" Conference this year. The focus lies on the topics of migration and integration - as challenges both for immigrants and for politics and society here.

In August 2015, Angela Merkel said: "We can manage it!" How will we assess this sentence in 2025? How much will we have managed? And what exactly must we actually manage?

With this year's "Denk ich an Deutschland" Conference, Alfred Herrhausen Gesellschaft and Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung venture a look into the future. Or rather: into possible futures, since the conference is arranged on methodically based scenarios which depict conceivable developments.

On the basis of these scenarios, there is to be discussion as to the groundwork which needs to be laid so that integration can succeed in the future. Which influencing factors will have an impact on our future coexistence with immigrants? What are the risks? Which opportunities can we already exploit now?

Together with experts from politics, economy and society, Alfred Herrhausen Gesellschaft has elaborated scenarios on the topic of migration and integration in Germany for the year 2025. The entire process up to the creation of the scenarios has been methodically supervised by Z_punkt. The Foresight Company. These scenarios form the starting point for the conference programme on 23 September 2016.
