„Diversity – Limits and Opportunities“- Introducing Our Table Hosts

„Diversity“ seems to be all around us, but what does it really mean? What do people imagine when they are asking for a more diverse society? How can we approach aspects of diversity like gender, intersectionality, migration, or gentrification? What can we learn from communities worldwide?
