Talk and Luncheon with Luisa Neubauer (on zoom), Alexander Repenning and Sabine von Mering
“Climate change is the biggest crisis of humankind. We can't watch other people drive our future right against the wall.”
This is a quote by Luisa Neubauer – the most famous German climate activist. As global climate change forecasts become more drastic and fear is spreading, young activists, like Luisa and Alexander, are taking the floor. Both are young, full of courage and zest for action, they want to infect us with their strength to oppose climate change and to take responsibility for the future of our planet. What does the future hold? When it comes to the climate, the predictions are pretty precise by now. And just as frightening.
Join us for a stimulating conversation on German climate action, climate justice, and climate activism, and what must be done to protect a livable future.

In Beginning to End the Climate Crisis climate activist Luisa Neubauer and the sociologist Alexander Repenning create the history of our future. For humankind is at a crossroads. If we don't change course now, we’ll eliminate ourselves. Politicians, entrepreneurs, citizens, everyone must take action. But how? One thing is undisputed: There is no planet B. Everyone must inform and organize oneself to save the future. In Beginning to End the Climate Crisis Neubauer and Repenning present solutions that are ready to be implemented and must finally be put into practice. But they also demonstrate the attitude with which we must deal with this exceptional situation: undaunted but level-headed. And unyielding towards those who determine our future. Because the last chance for a positive end to the climate crisis is NOW.
