>In Istanbul with BMW Foundation

Last weekend I had the priviledge to be invited by the BMW Foundation to their 3rd European Young Leaders Forum.

In the first panel discussion looked closer at Turkey’s current status on the road to EU accession and the contradictions in society and politics. The second panel discussion focused on the city of Istanbul as global megacity and hub between two continents. After the panel discussions, the conference topic addressed and examined through field trips to various institutions in Istanbul. On Saturday we met in workshops to deal with concrete examples for promoting social cohesion in Istanbul and from the circle of participants; I hope we contributed to help develop and support the presented projects and institutions.
