Welcome to Recognio e.V.

“We are responsible for what we do, but also for what we do not do.” – Voltaire

As Recognio e.V. we stand for open discussions of all political, economic and social concerns. We pursue the goal of creating an open platform for collaborative discourse and consolidating it in the long term as a think tank in order to support clients in projects with our expertise.

It is particularly important to us to be open to all perspectives in order to obtain a holistic view of the essentials.

Our Members

We attach great importance to diversity and are therefore particularly pleased about the many different personalities of our members.

This benefits the association as well as each and every one of us!

Tim Schwarzmeier
Tim SchwarzmeierFounder & Chairman
Factual and unbiased exchange about society, economy and politics has become rare. It is time to improve the discussion culture with the help of Recognio e.V. and to give something back to society!
Patrick Bergmann
Patrick BergmannCo-Founder & 2. Chairman
With the motivation to create a platform for joint discourse, Patrick founded the association together with Tim and has been passionately developing it ever since in his role as 2nd chairman.
Alexander Heil
Alexander HeilTreasurer
Always complaining about the decisions of politicians is annoying. If you want to change something, you have to become active yourself. Often, however, the discussion in the group also helps to rethink / question one’s opinion or to look at it from a different perspective.
Patrick Penz
Patrick PenzSocial Media Manager
Escape the filtered flow of information. New angles and exciting perspectives on important and moving topics. Giving something back to society and steering the culture of discussion in an open and unprejudiced direction. That’s what Patrick was looking for and found in Recognio e.V..
Felix Pietsch

Joining Recognio was a conscious decision for Felix to get out of his usual filter bubble, meet engaged people, and be able to discuss the issues of the day in a respectful and informed setting.

A living culture of discussion that does not lead to quarrels but keeps common ground in mind is very important in a democracy. Our association stands for this common exchange and (newly) won friendships.

The exchange of opinions and interests, as well as the idea of being able to make a difference by bringing together knowledge and expertise from a wide variety of fields, convinced Lena. “Especially in this day and age, it is more important than ever to support each other, help each other and do good”.
