Climate Activism - Still from NOW © The Party Sales

Thu, 04.11.2021


Email exchange between young climate activists from different places in Europe about their experiences and motives in their work.

The exchange will accompany the screening of Now by Jim Rakete, which will be freely available to stream for a fortnight on Goethe on Demand.

Geo and Asuka, two young climate activists, exchange their views in writing on different aspects of their engagement and give us an insight into their motivations and thoughts but also let us see their anger and frustration. What needs to happen so the young generation will be heard and their future taken seriously?

Aim of the written conversation is among other things the exchange and the discovery of commonalities, differences and problems that are evident in the work of young activists. You can follow the exchange from 4 November on this website and on our Social Media channels.
