We founded a digital Republic: The Republic of Responsible Optimists (RORO). The soft-launch took place at a pop-up roundtable on a job site in Zurich. With the Republic, we established a “social citizenship” program to engage like-minded human beings on a deep societal level. Sign up to be a "Davuzer" here.
During the UN General Assembly and the Climate Week Rudi attended several top-events. Amongst those was the Co-Impact Meeting at the Rockefeller Foundation, with Olivia Leland und Bill Gates, a distinguished panel exploring new integrated electrification strategies to end energy poverty. Also, he was invited to the TED Headquarters: Within the event "We The Future" various international change-makers talked about their projects and experiences tackling the Sustainable Development Goals.
Speaking about TED: Christopher held a keynote about social citizenship at TEDx Königsallee in Düsseldorf. The overall topic of the TEDx event was "Outside the bubble". Christopher's message matched perfectly: "Being born into a specific nation is nothing but pure serendipity. Yet, it is one of the most important aspects of our chance of having a decent life. But what if we could make a conscious decision about that? What if we can complement our native citizenship with social citizenship that we choose?"
