3rd Round – Joint think tank

Young and old providing new impetus in the fight against hunger

(Autumn 2012) Does development cooperation need to change? What image of Africa is Welthungerhilfe transmitting and how can new cooperations be organised? Creatives accepted the invitation of Welthungerhilfe to discuss fundamental questions and to meet participants of the ‘youth think tank’.



In a new edition of the think tank, people came together to answer questions of the future direction of Welthungerhilfe. Gesine Schwan also called for the fight against hunger to become more political.

A result of the first think tank was a youth think tank with the goal of taking young people into greater consideration in the work spectrum of Welthungerhilfe. Within the framework of the third joint think tank, both groups finally came together in dialogue with each other. Representatives of the youth think tank sharpened the views of the experienced zeitgeisters to new perspectives. Within the context of its 50th anniversary, Welthungerhilfe is providing new impetus in the fight against hunger.
