Esra Küçük and Harald Welzer in conversation

Are the topics sustainability and climate protection cultural projects? What influence does the corona pandemic have on our environmental awareness, does the crisis also represent an opportunity? Esra Küçük and Harald Welzer discussed these and other questions at the interface of culture and sustainability as part of the "Kultur und Nachhaltigkeit" ( "Culture and Sustainability") discussion series organized by the Stiftung Genshagen in cooperation with the  Allianz Umweltstiftung.

A special event at the international literature festival berlin with Nora Bossong, Daniel Kehlmann, Pankaj Mishra, Sharon Dodua Otoo and Mario Vargas Lllosa.

The current pandemic is one of the greatest challenges. Art and culture, like all areas of life, have been severely affected by the crisis and their very existence is threatened. Culture is a way for citizens to participate in a discourse that gives substance to the process of democratization. Reflections by the invited authors on culture and its role in challenging times constitute the core of the event. How can culture contribute to strengthening democracies and containing nationalist tendencies in times of crisis?
