If one asks about the "big themes" of DGM history, one can quickly identify scientific-technical or political-economic developments. But on closer inspection, one can discover an area that describes a remarkable change in mentality. At the beginning of the 1990s, the age structure of membership gave cause for great concern. What were the reasons for the lack of young talent? To put it badly: The Annual General Meetings passed by the interests of the younger generation, and even worse, their role was reduced to that of silent consumers.
