Public Program | Aspen Summer Party 2016 of the Aspen Institute Germany and the “Verein der Freunde des Aspen Instituts”
On June 21, 2016, the Aspen Institute Germany and the Verein der Freunde of the Aspen Institute hosted its annual Summer Party at the Mendelssohn Remise in Berlin. Given the wonderful location and the lovely weather, our guests had a pleasant evening at our Summer Party. This evening’s guest of honor Richard Kühnel, Head of the European Commission Representation in Germany, together with Rüdiger Lentz, discussed “The European Union before the UK Referendum – Thoughts on European Unity” and the implications of a potential “Brexit” for the European Union. In addition to the insightful discussion, the Aspen Institute offered a public screening of the final preliminary game of Germany against Northern Ireland as part of the Football European championship – which was crowned with a German victory.
