6 Degrees is the global forum for inclusion, and a project of the Institute for Canadian Citizenship (ICC). We’re excited to be bringing our unique 6 Degrees style of conversation to Frankfurt. The novelist and essayist John Ralston Saul (who is also co-founder and co-chair of the ICC) has gathered seven other renowned writers from Canada and Germany to address the increasing polarization of our time, to find new ways to achieve more inclusion, and to defend plurality and equality in a critical time.


Presented by the Government of Canada in partnership with 6 Degrees, a project of the Institute for Canadian Citizenship.
