Innovative, controversial, informed – this is what #ZEWlive is all about. In a series of digital events that have been taking place since April 2020 in a compact 60 minutes around lunchtime, experts and experienced moderators discuss current issues. #ZEWlive is designed to encourage interaction: the audience is invited to ask questions live and follow the event via a live stream.

Thematically, the first two seasons in 2020 and 2021 focus on COVID-19: What challenges does the pandemic pose for the economy, politics and society? And how can we successfully overcome the crisis?
