For­mer Pres­i­dent Barack Obama says he wants to sup­port young lead­ers in Europe and else­where who are try­ing to tackle prob­lems such as cli­mate change and in­equal­ity.

Obama told a town hall meet­ing Satur­day in Berlin that men­tor­ing ac­tivists through his foun­da­tion may help en­cour­age “mil­lions of peo­ple who are work­ing on the val­ues and causes that we so deeply be­lieve in.” He said de­spite Europe’s wealth, so­cial achieve­ments and decades of peace, “we also know that pow­er­ful forces are work­ing to re­verse many of these trends.”

The for­mer pres­i­dent sug­gested that fos­ter­ing rea­soned de­bate on­line should be a key task to keep pol­i­tics from go­ing in a neg­a­tive di­rec­tion.
