Telefónica has committed itself to transparent representation of interests and is entered in the lobby register of the German Bundestag.
Telefónica in Berlin

This results in a regular need for exchange between Telefónica and politics.

These include the public formats of the BASECAMP on site as well as digitally in the BASECAMP ON AIR and the events in the Digital Lounge that take place by personal invitation.

Dialogue platform and debate room:BASECAMP in Berlin
Discuss, participate, discover
The BASECAMP is both a digital platform with the BASECAMP blog as well as a debate room and event location from Telefónica in the heart of Berlin. We discuss, inspire and polarize together with business, politics and the media in the middle of the government district. To the BASECAMP website
Masterminds is our future format: We think outside the box and create space for inspiration, innovation and creativity. Global thinkers and opinion leaders come together here to discuss, analyze and sometimes polarize the social and political effects of digitization.
UdL Digital Talk
Since 2010, top-class politicians and opinion leaders have been meeting at the UdL Digital Talk to discuss current topics in German and European digital politics. Among the guests of the political talk show at BASECAMP were Robert Habeck, Christine Lambrecht, Hubertus Heil, Christian Lindner, Michael Kretschmer, Ursula von der Leyen and other well-known politicians. The presenter is TV journalist Cherno Jobatey.
Together with the Tagesspiegel | Tagesspiegel Data Debates is the debate forum on digital topics in the capital. High-ranking guests from politics, business, science, religion and culture regularly debate digitization and the potential of the new wealth of data as well as the requirements for data protection and the effects of digitization on society at the Tagesspiegel Data Debates.
Current, dynamic, to the point. This is “Nachgefragt!”. We invite personalities from politics, business and the media to BASECAMP for a word. In 30 minutes we ask the most important questions on current topics and clarify them.
The best conversations always take place at the kitchen table. That's why we brought exactly this one to the middle of the BASECAMP. Experts discuss the most important topics of digitization at our kitchen table with a checkered tablecloth, pretzels and the obligatory sunflowers. A seat is also free for spontaneous guests from the audience.
Whether "Agile in a glass", "5G in a glass", "Mobile in a glass" or "Surprise in a glass" - our FishBowl format has workshop character and is our colorful, interactive format in BASECAMP. In addition to our experts, there is always a free guest chair on which changing guests from the audience can sit and join in the discussion.
