“Dear Dr Fathi, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you once again for your lecture at the conference of the Berlin-Brandenburg Regional Social Court (…). You gave a lecture at the Justice Academy of the State of Brandenburg that will make it easier for us to deal with emotions in our everyday legal work and thus our daily work. You demonstrated the mechanisms in a very clear and understandable way and thus gave us a better understanding of emotionally challenging situations. I would particularly like to emphasise your successful involvement of the participants in the development of the problem. (…) I would be very pleased if there were further cooperation.” 

Oesterle. Vice-President of the Berlin-Brandenburg Regional Social Court

In five “Lockdown Lessons” during the height of the Corona pandemic in Germany, polisphere, together with the Open Society Initiative and the Federal Foreign Office, created a digital conversation space to reflect together on the effects of the “shutdown society”. Looking forward was the central element of the event series: What do we take with us from the lockdown into the newly launched world? Which techniques have we unlearned during these weeks? Which ones have we strengthened? The innovative digital format took the form of “thought sprints” on personal experiences of isolation, the European public sphere, science communication, climate change and civil society togetherness. As part of the fifth Lockdown Lession, Dr Karim Fathi gave an inspiring talk on “Opportunities and potentials for societal multi-resilience in the Corona crisis” to a wider audience from civil society and politics. We thank him very much for the very good cooperation, our expectations were more than met!”
