If I weren't poor, you wouldn't be rich?* - House of Commons debate on child poverty, origin, access to education and equal opportunities

Germany is considered a rich country and yet every fifth child here is at risk of poverty. How can that be? This is not befitting of such a rich country, and something must be done about it. Everyone agrees on that. But how far does this agreement go when it comes to concrete measures? Especially when it is not just about the moderate redistribution of money, but about deeper privileges in our society? Following the example of the British House of Commons, everyone is invited to discuss together with experts from politics, society and science how serious we are about our children's lives, health and future.
