Call for Applications: The Young Atlantiks Program promotes the “next generation” of German-Canadian transatlantic partnership.

Atlantik-Brücke

Transatlantic cooperation is and remains indispensable for the protection of the rules-based order and international stability, especially in light of the shift in global power axes. This makes Atlantik-Brücke all the more committed to its mission of promoting open dialogue between Germany, Europe, the United States and Canada. After all, we can only achieve a world in which individual freedom, democracy and fair competition prevail if we work together. As a non-profit and non-partisan association, Atlantik-Brücke brings together representatives from politics and business, from the media and civil society – on both sides of the Atlantic. It offers a platform for different perspectives and a lively debate.
