He was a producer for the German public broadcaster ARD in Geneva and Zurich and the director of the NZZ Podium Europa in Berlin, the former international event series of the Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Andrea Sorg also founded the peer review formats for urban planning (Stadtluft) and governance (European Blend), which are run by Schwarzsee. Andrea Sorg studied history, journalism and literature (lic. ès lettres) in Geneva, London and Fribourg and speaks German, French, English and Norwegian. He is married to a Scandinavian and has two daughters. In his free time, he runs, plays football, devours newspapers, reads books and explores big cities.

“Over the past decade, I have worked with Andrea Roman Sorg on several occasions as part of the NZZ Podium Europa, which he invented and, as a consequence, I have had an ongoing, very lively discussion with him. Above all, I was impressed by his singular talent for staging intellectual events: he has an acute sense for intriguing topics, for productive configurations of speakers and panelists, and for event forms that keep even large audiences both attentive and entertained. Politically, intellectually and even financially, I would sure bet on the formats designed by Andrea Roman Sorg.”
