A new Utopia for Europe.
We, the citizens of Europe, give ourselves six new fundamental rights. Because Europe needs answers to the pressing issues of our time: environmental degradation, climate crisis, artificial intelligence, the power of algorithms, systematic lies in politics, new autocracies, unchecked globalization, threats to the rule of law and war.
With this idea, the lawyer and author Ferdinand von Schirach outlined in his small book "Jeder Mensch" his idea of how we can renew the idea of Europe and make it fit for the future. The foundation Jeder Mensch e.V., which was founded for this purpose, is working on the implementation of these goals. Are you part of it?
