Just returned from Bonn, where I had the incredible opportunity to attend the inaugural b° future festival for journalism and constructive dialogue. These two days were an absolute whirlwind of eye-opening conversations, thought-provoking panels, and inspiring moments that left me buzzing with excitement.
