One’s participation in society depends on one’s ability to formulate complex texts simply. The concept that should make this possible is called Simple Language. Zsolt Szilagyi, who grew up multilingual, places communication of complex content at the center of his career. Since 2014 he has been dealing with Simple Language and the possibility of making our world understandable for everyone – regardless of their language skills or cognitive abilities. Zsolt’s talk will be held in German language.
