Q BERLIN - The Metropolitan Conference for the Immediate Present

  • Congresses
  • Economy & Politics
Q BERLIN, which will take place from September 15-16 2022 at the ICC, will focus this year on the current state of the changing times - "The new unknown - navigating zeitenwende".

This year’s Q BERLIN is focusing on our current moment of Zeitenwende - a moment of global unknowns. Profound shifts in global dynamics, an ongoing war in Europe, a pandemic spanning over two years, a looming energy and economical crisis, and increasing pressure to accelerate the green transition - all contribute to the state of crisis that defines the world we live in now. It is a historical turning point.

Pressing issues of the present - especially in their relevance for global metropolises - will be discussed with international experts* from technology, culture, politics, science and business, focusing on three themes:
  • Transformation & Resilience - On Crises as Change Agents.
  • Global Cohesion & Solidarity - On Food, Shelter & Economy
  • Democracies in Danger - On Freedom of Expression, Propaganda and Fake News

On behalf of the City of Berlin, visitBerlin has been organizing Q BERLIN since 2017. visionaries, thinkers and designers, who form their own opinions and take on individual responsibilit  are invited to share and discuss their points of view.

As a platform for dialogue, Q BERLIN provides orientation and conveys knowledge and perspectives.
