    • KlimaLectures x KlimaDiskurse: An die Wurzeln. Warum wird nicht entschieden, was nötig wäre?

      To the roots. Why is there no decision on what is needed?

      "We need a new radicalism in political action" - this is one of the central messages of Bernd Ulrich, deputy editor-in-chief of the weekly newspaper Die ZEIT and co-author of "Noch haben wir die Wahl" (together with Luisa Neubauer, Fridays for Future). But why are decisions not being made on what would be necessary to solve the significant global challenges of our time, such as the climate crisis or the extinction

      of species? And how can we achieve the required transformation of all areas of our lives and economies?

      Representatives of Die Junge Akademie and the Bavarian Climate Research Network (bayklif) will discuss these and other theses with Bernd Ulrich at a joint event.
