As a German-American Institute, the Carl-Schurz-Haus functions as an intercultural education center and networker in a diverse, young,
productive and forward-thinking community in Freiburg and beyond.  
Rapid transformation of work spaces and divergent positions on data security, entrepreneurship and business styles within the transatlantic community make the digital transformation a vital topic for the dialogue which the German-American institutes in Baden-Wuerttemberg have fostered over the past 60 years.
Together with the IT network bwcon we want to foster a transatlantic dialogue on the social and economic implications of the vast and fast technological progress which is now touching the foundations of the governance of our societal structures. Humans are on the verge of evolving from consumers to prosumers, and old, entrenched theories – in particular sociological and economic ones – are falling prey to these rapid developments. Each year, we produce as much data as in the entirety of human history - can we possibly create a global crystal ball to predict our future and optimally govern our world? Do we need wide-scale surveillance to understand, control and manage the increasingly complex systems we are constructing, or would bottom-up approaches such as self-regulating systems be a better solution to creating a more innovative,  
successful, resilient, and ultimately happier society?
- Let’s talk.
