Is it irresponsible to bring children into this world?

The new debate format from the ZEIT STIFTUNG BUCERIUS, Heimathafen Neukölln and Holtzbrinck Berlin. At the premiere, the thesis is discussed: “It is irresponsible to bring children into this world.”



There are many reasons to question having children at this time: the climate crisis, wars, insecure working conditions that are made even more fragile by artificial intelligence, the growing instability of relationships and much more. These are all understandable objections. But sometimes the desire for children transcends all these arguments. Many want to start their own family, give meaning to life or pass on their values. Can such a personal decision be made rationally? What are the reasons for and against having children? Is it irresponsible to bring children into this world?


Dispute & Confidence invites you to be part of an exciting debate. Regardless of whether you have already made up your mind about the topic or are still in the decision-making phase, this evening will help you understand and challenge your own opinions. They not only give room to doubt, they celebrate it because it often leads to clearer thinking.


This evening two passionate debaters await the audience, defending their points of view. They are supported by experts who use short impulses to shed light on scientific, political and emotional aspects. Interactive elements give the audience the chance to help shape the evening.


An evening full of exciting discussions and new perspectives!
