2 episodes of the documentary series (Episode 3: Essen und Ernten and Episode 6: Wirtschaft mal anders)

The climate is changing. Experts are arguing about future scenarios, the situation is complicated. But is everything really hopeless?

Anke Engelke, Bjarne Mädel, Annette Frier, Axel Prahl, Sebastian Vettel, Pheline Roggan and Aurel Mertz go in search of good news: They visit people who don’t moan, but take action – for example when it comes to energy, mobility, food, housing and nature. The festival is showing two episodes of the 6-part SWR series, which takes a concrete approach to the topic of climate. Aurel Mertz and Pheline Roggan debunk myths in episode 3 and try Bavarian pea burgers, among other things. And Bjarne Mädel checks how many unnecessary kilometers our food travels on its journey around the world.

Why do good ideas often not prevail? This question is the subject of episode 6, in which Bjarne Mädel and Anke Engelke ask political economist Maja Göpel what needs to change in the economic system. Their journey takes them to the Ahr Valley and to the first climate-neutral beer brewer in the Allgäu.
