UNITED FOR DEMOCRACY - Dresden's science and culture invites you

Big event on May 25, 2024

Map of meeting points and times for the star processions and the final meeting point on Altmarkt for May 25.

Dresden's scientific and cultural institutions, under the umbrella of DRESDEN-concept e. V. and the alliance #WOD Weltoffenes Dresden, invite you to participate in four star parades and a festival of democracy on May 25, 2024, on Dresden's Altmarkt.

Together, we want to send a clear signal for democracy and our constitutional rights: the dignity of every human being is inviolable, and the voices of minorities are heard. For us, these are things that are taken for granted but they are increasingly under threat. Together, we want to protect these fundamental values of our democratic and open society. The freedom of science and art is fundamental for a society that wishes to overcome the major challenges of our time.

We invite you to join us!

Join us in our commitment to democracy! Starting at 2 p.m., several groups will move to the Altmarkt in four-star trains. The Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics will start with the star procession from Sachsenplatz. A stage program with speeches and music will take place at the Altmarkt. There, we would like to encourage encounters and discussions through various scientific and artistic exchange formats. Tell us about your experiences, let us discuss together why democratic principles are essential for science to be successful. Everyone is welcome to join us in working for democracy.
