Reading and discussion with historian Hedwig Richter and ZEIT journalist Bernd Ulrich at Kulturhafen

An event organized by the Heinrich Böll Foundation MV and the Literaturhaus Rostock.

Young people are breaking the law on the streets and invoking the climate ruling of the Federal Constitutional Court, according to which the living do not have the right to halve the freedom of future generations. The German government is not adhering to the Paris Agreement and at the same time is coming up against the limits of growth and the debt brake because the costs of climate change have to be borne at the same time.

A contradiction has arisen between democracy and ecology, between the unavoidable pressure of time and the slowness of democracy. Historian Hedwig Richter and ZEIT journalist Bernd Ulrich show how our livelihoods can be preserved and outline a future that will also guarantee future generations the freedom of action that is essential for a democracy.
