Vom Ende der Klimakrise

2021 is a year of watersheds. The Bundestag elections mark the end of the Merkel era after 16 years, and in a historic decision, the Federal Constitutional Court strengthens the liberties of the younger generation. Ecology is finally at the center of all future issues: economy, transport, nutrition, but also science, journalism and politics - elementary areas of society have to be rethought. Major upheavals are on the horizon. And much depends on whether we find common solutions. How much honesty can the conflict between the generations tolerate? Luisa Neubauer presents her new book "Noch haben wir die Wahl" (We still have a choice), which was published in July of this year. It includes a conversation about freedom, ecology and the conflict between generations, which she conducted with the deputy editor-in-chief of DIE ZEIT, Bernd Ulrich.
