Quo Vademus is a crowd-based think tank for youth and public engagement in politics and current affairs. We currently experience a global trend of people’s disenchantment with politics and global affairs. The decline of young people’s interest and the rise of disinformation through social media are particularly dangerous. In order to work against disinformation and disenchantment, we created quo-vademus.org as a platform, network and community to promote the thoughts, analyses, and opinions of the youth.
Our Mission and Goals are:
- to attain a broad community and create a network of young, critical thinkers.
- (re-)ignite young people’s interest in current affairs and international relations.
- give (young) people the opportunity to share their thoughts and contribute to a field that is typically rather occupied by “experienced” professionals.
We are looking for dedicated young writers who would like to contribute to our mission and write thought-provoking articles on current affairs for Quo Vademus – either on a one-time-only or on a continuous basis.
