Manifesto „Reclaiming Europe“


Die Junge Akademie and the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities (BBAW), together with a number of partner institutions, are publishing the manifesto "Reclaiming Europe". The manifesto outlines the role and social responsibility of the sciences and humanities in relation to a democratic and united Europe, in particular with regard to the war of aggression against Ukraine and its consequences. The signatories of the manifesto are in favour of increased scientific exchange with Eastern European countries and want to create a platform for perspectives from and on Eastern Europe with the "Young Network TransEurope". The network is primarily intended to strengthen the voices of excellent young academics.

Gisela Kopp, spokesperson of the Junge Akademie, is one of the organisers and first signatories of the Reclaiming Europe manifesto. Together with other well-known signatories from academia, politics and civil society, she is sending a signal in favour of European unity, plurality and a sustainable commitment to peace and cohesion.

The manifesto can be viewed here.

Further information on the manifesto and the option to sign it can be found on the BBAW website.
