We acknowledge that the paradigm shift coming with the Digital Modern  results in significant change of agenda trends, methodical applications and electoral behaviour worldwide. Right-wing conservatives have successfully begun to instrumentalize populism based on the idea of  “homeland” to increase their share of voice. In comparison the liberal-progressive, technological and globalisation affine community  seemingly lacks of a narrative that could compete with this populism on eye-level. 


Together with a selected and diverse group of international thought  leaders we strive to intellectually hack the prevailing lines of Western  political thinking on the Digital Modern in regards to societal and  economic progress. We aim at finding a strong narrative that can  correspondingly compete with the romantic and backwards driven “homeland”  populism. 

We base our thinking on the theories of the circular economy model, the  United Nations 17 sustainable development goals and our own findings on  the Digital Modern’s new rule set. 


The activity is carried out on the independent and politically neutral THE’s behalf and platform.
