It is the most sensational event of the past year: the massive protest of young people against the climate impasse. This Generation Hope holds up a mirror to politicians and has catapulted the climate crisis to the centre of our social debate. By uniting, refusing to accept half-hearted measures and insisting on radical climate policies, young people have occupied a prominent place on the political stage. How can we keep the earth’s warming under 1.5°C? What are the policies that we need? Ecopolis 2019 is a special edition for but especially with #GenerationHope, on the theme of a sustainable future on a liveable planet.
Theatre makers Anoek Nuyens and Rebekka De Wit start the day with two monologues: one for the government, one for the citizen.
