METRO always thinks one step ahead. We identify challenges. We ask the right questions. We look for pioneering concepts. Lobbying often has negative connotations in the public debate. However, this overlooks the fact that democracy thrives on discourse. Democracy thrives on individuals, groups and organisations expressing their opinion – which is what lobbying is all about.
METRO’s work upholds the principles of responsible lobbying. We want to drive the academic discussion about transparent lobbying forwards. What is more, we want to further develop the concept of responsible lobbying in conjunction with universities and other partners.
Grants and seminars
METRO has been supporting students at Quadriga University of Applied Sciences since 2014. We award grants for students on its Communication & Leadership MBA, Public Affairs & Leadership MBA and Communication & Leadership MA programmes. Students who receive these grants are given practical insights into stakeholder communication at our company.
METRO also works with Quadriga University of Applied Sciences at other levels. We provide insights into our work at various seminars, we are available to answer questions and we assist with students’ theses by sharing expertise and information. We also collaborate with other institutions in this way, including the Institute of Political Science at Mainz University.
Hand in hand with our partners, we want to develop constructive solutions: what could responsible political lobbying mean for businesses, now and in the future, locally and globally, offline and online?
