This time 17 young people between the ages of 12 and 15 deal with goals 11 and 13 of the 2030 Agenda in the theater play club “Die Forscher*innen”. Accordingly, they dealt with sustainable urban development and climate protection and took new, sometimes unusual perspectives on the topic. They were advised by representatives of the “epiz – Development Pedagogical Information Centre Berlin” and the “UfU – Independent Institute for Environmental Issues”, who were ready for intensive and informative discussions.
And in the middle of the rehearsal process, something extraordinary happened: due to the coronavirus, neither personal rehearsals nor the performances could take place in May 2020. But the rehearsals continued – digitally in video conferences. So the idea arose to develop a radio play in three episodes from a play. In joint digital rehearsals, “Die Forscher*innen” diligently recorded the texts – each individually at home and yet digitally connected to one another.
The Berlin city goddess Alexa is beside herself: Somebody declared a climate emergency – and she really wanted to avoid that. The mayor breaks off his pottery course and comes immediately to the crisis meeting. And the Berliners, too, for whom climate change has always been a long way off, are now shuffling through hail and storms from ignorance to panic to pragmatism, developing their very own emergency plan. Can the city still be saved? Which ideas from other regions of the world could help? And what is the best way to deal with climate destroyers?
