Plastic in the oceans, forest fires in the Amazon: on Ecologues the Goethe-Institut presents constructive answers to climate change and brings together regional experts in global debates on sustainability. Above all, the question arises: How do we survive the human age?

55 Voices for Democracy: The Podcast
Listen now! 55 Voices for Democracy, hosted by New York Times bestselling author Tom Zoellner, was launched by the Thomas Mann House and expanded into a full podcast series. It was inspired by the 55 BBC radio addresses Thomas Mann delivered from his home in California to thousands of listeners in Europe between 1940 and 1945, speaking out against fascism and becoming the most significant German defender of democracy in exile. Tom Zoellner and his co-hosts engage in vivid conversations with intellectuals, artists, and activists about the question of how to renew democracy today.
