Why are citizens showing progressively less and less interest in politics? For Marina Weisband, the answer is evident: her generation grew up with the internet, is constantly expected to be on top of recent developments, and has learned to question everything. The political system in Germany, on the other hand, has stopped developing and never learned to adapt to the age of digitalization. Weisband discusses different possibilities of a more modern, democratic and personal political system and speaks about her own personal journey to active participation in politics. WIR NENNES ES POLITIK is a call to all to help shape the world we live in. Marina Weisband is a first-time guest at the ilb and will be speaking about WIR NENNES ES POLITIK as a part of the “International Congress for Freedom and Democracy”. “Marina Weisband, the digital generation’s response to Rosa Luxemburg” (Georg Diez, DER SPIEGEL).
