As the Democratic Foundation announced on Tuesday, 19 March 2019, the 57-year-old former President of the United States will be answering questions from young people at an event on April 6.

Not the first Obama visit to Berlin

According to the foundation, around 300 young people from Europe who are involved in areas such as civil society, integration or food security are taking part in the town hall. Obama has already been to Berlin several times. Most recently, he took part in a panel discussion with Chancellor Angela Merkel at the Kirchentag in May 2017.
