Engage America  Series

The WACA National Office partners with think tanks, foundations, NGOs, corporations, and occasionally government agencies to arrange timely "national conversations" at several World Affairs Councils across the country on critical international topics.

Wunderbar Together: The Future of Democracy

Presented by Goethe-Institut


WACA is pleased to announced the continuation of its partnership with the Goethe-Institut for a Wunderbar Together 2021 grant series. The aim of this series is to convene high-level speakers for public forums on "Wunderbar Together 2021: Germany, the United States, and the Future of Democracy."

Under the auspices of Wunderbar Together 2021, the World Affairs Councils of America, the American Council on Germany, and Atlantik-Brücke partner with World Affairs Councils across the country to hold a series of virtual events that will focus on challenges to democracy in Germany, Europe, and the United States. The experts will discuss the causes of this democratic malaise, analyze how serious these threats are, and examine what can be done to push back against those pressures – with a view to the exploration of how Europe and the U.S. can better collaborate on these issues.
