Tolerance Talks 2021 Preview via Live-Stream

Fairness and tolerance in times of the pandemic are the keywords with which the organizers of the European tolerance talks are going into 2021. The consequences of the pandemic extend far beyond physical integrity and health and affect the economy, culture and sport equally. What must be done now so that our social structure continues to function?
