Vernissage of the exhibition TRANSFORMATION 1.4.2022, Group Global 3000, Berlin

Hello SUV-drivers, politicians, fossil-addicts, fossil-earners, conspiracy-believers, waiting, finger-pointing, hedonists, deniers, non-competents, neighbors, fellow human beings, real estate owners, voters, citizens,

Hello father, mother, daughter, son, grandson.

What are you waiting for? Where are you hesitating? Do you think you can’t change anything? All this has nothing to do with you? Not with your future, your children, your grandchildren?

Get your ass up!

Science agrees. Groundwater is already down. Species are dead. Warmer it is worldwide. How many species, forests will die, areas will be sealed, how many coasts will sink, people will flee from the climate, die because of the climate. How much exploitation will remain, how many viruses will still come from the zoonoses, how hot will it get?

Get your ass up!

Where are your potentials, your activities to change, to save the world, from global warming, from extinction of species, from dependence on dictators?

Get your ass up!

There is a lot to do on the way to a world fit for grandchildren. Big changes, personal, neighborly, with friends, like-minded people, communal, regional, national and global. We have been too slow so far. We need momentum that we don’t have today.

Get your ass up!

The sooner we get to it, the easier the arduous adjustments will be. Timely action is more beneficial than procrastination. Assume a lot will change. Go for it, use your potentials, apply the energy saving tips, find out online your CO2 and your footprint, eat more vegetables and less meat, repair things instead of buying new, spend vacations flying less, buy solar, vote for the most climate active party, take to the streets for these changes, join with people for change.

Get your ass up!

You may get restlessness, but you may get inner peace because you found it, fun, depth, satisfaction, good conscience, focus on what matters, save money. Your long-term thinking pays off. Be active, experiment, compromise.

Get your ass up!
