Other countries around the globe have a very different relation to their home.Is national pride the first step towards nationalism? Or is it an important part of your identity? Let's discuss our different relations to our home countrie!We want to create an open space for discussions and provide you with the opportunity to learn more about current issues and to share your opinion. Following our slogan: "Watch - Think - Discuss" we will meet on a regular basis, watch a short video (e.g. a TED talk) and discuss!
