More than 6500 people joined the first online only edition of Germany Talks on May 10, 2020.
On Sunday, May 10, thousands of
people around Germany met up once again to discuss the consequences of
the coronavirus pandemic – this time via video chat.
Over several weeks preceding the event, ZEIT ONLINE and ZEIT – in
cooperation with the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, the Schwäbische
Zeitung, the Rheinische Post, Chrismon and evangelisch.de – had invited
their readers to take part.
The positions held by participants this year were extremely
divergent. The coronavirus has proven to be more polarizing than any
other controversial issue thus far addressed by Germany Talks events.
