September 20th at 19:30h at CHB – Collegium Hungaricum - Dorotheenstrasse 12, 10117

On the day of German-wide climate protests, in cooperation with the international literature festival berlin and activists of Extinction Rebellion, we will discuss the dynamics of the recent protests with contributors of the Extinction Rebellion Handbook Germany “Wann wenn nicht wir*” (S. Fischer, 2019) and a Green Party MEP.

The climate question has re-emerged as the defining question of our era. Climate justice movements have made the call for system change acceptable again through new ways of mobilising on the streets. Has activism changed in the time of climate change? What strategies work best for reaching the needed influence into effective policy for the socio-ecological transformation?

With Sina Kamala Kauffmann (Extinction Rebellion Germany), Magid Magid (Green Party MEP), Ulrike von Pilar (Ärzte ohne Grenzen).
Moderation: Daphne Büllesbach (European Alternatives).

After the conversation, at 21:00, everyone is invited to have drinks and exchange at the venue.
