Reading & discussion with historian Hedwig Richter and ZEIT journalist Bernd Ulrich

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 also guarantees future generations the freedom to shape their own lives, which is essential for a democracy.
