    BMW Foundation European Table

    Collaborating for a Democratic Europe

    The coronavirus pandemic threatens to undermine European solidarity and unity, important pre-requisites for further integration and the development of a Europe for citizens. Now more than ever, it is essential to combine forces and build collaborations in the civic sector. To this end, the Responsible Leaders Table brings together like-minded non-state actors from across Europe for a digital leadership program guided by the theme of trust-building and bonding.

    The BMW Foundation promotes responsible leadership and inspires leaders worldwide to work towards a peaceful, just, and sustainable future in accordance with the United Nations 2030 Agenda. Rooted in Germany and active all over the world, the BMW Foundation is taking a clear stance for the principles and goals of a united, strong, and people-driven Europe. We share this vision with our partners Alliance4Europe, who promote active citizenship and democratic values by connecting activists across Europe, and Das Progressive Zentrum, who aims at strengthening democratic dialogue within Germany and across borders.

    Responsible Leaders Sessions

    Responsible Leaders Sessions

    The past weeks and months have been a wake-up call for many of us. We understand more clearly than ever that inequality, injustice, and unsustainability are determining the ways in which we engage with each other and the planet. At the same time, the transatlantic partnership is eroding, with no effective response yet from the international community. We thus consider this current moment an urgent call for Responsible Leadership.

    During the Responsible Leaders Sessions, a diverse group of leaders from across the Atlantic will embark on a process of critical reflection, questioning, and unlearning. We intend to enter not a safe but a brave space, one in which we dare to contemplate and examine uncomfortable truths. This way, we may learn to truly appreciate our differences and embrace our common values and interests, thereby contributing to the shaping of equal, just, and sustainable societies and to the re-strengthening of our bonds across the Atlantic.
