10.09.2014 : Myth, Image and Reality

The Federal Association of the Russian speaking Institutions in Germany and the German-Russian Forum organized a meeting in Bonn/Germany opened by the Russian Consul General Evgenij Schmagin (at the photo) , Prof.Dr. Bergmann/ M.Hoffmann (both of the Board of the Forum) and Larissa Yurchenko (Istok) about the dangers of the present political situation and the need for dialogue.

Discussing myth, image and reality the former German Ambassador Frank Elbe (Elbe-Lecture) made the point that "reality" is always interpreted by those who communicate and that therefore a second or third "reality" has to be heard to come to an independant judgement. Prof.Dr.Hallier mentioned the network of the European Retail Academy as an example for scientific dialogues ( III. World Economic Youth Forum in Astana/Kazakhstan) and student exchanges like AIESEC. The growth of the economic wealth in the last twenty years ( see : ERA-News of April 2nd,2014) is based on the exchange of international trade and should not be endangered by a War of Words - creating wrong/bad images/myths.
