Our COVID-19 strategy: How Agora embraced digital transformation

Agora was founded on grassroots participation. For us, this means having open, inclusive discussions about foreign policy with people of all ages, backgrounds, and political views in order to influence foreign policy.

Participation for future: Youth in party politics in Germany, Georgia and beyond

Party politics is losing touch with civil society, most prominently youth. During the past months, we have discussed actions to include young people and their diverse positions on contemporary issues in politics with youth and young experts in Georgia and Germany.
