"When I look at how drastic the situation is, how drastic the change we need is, and how even the simplest steps are not being taken, I feel pretty desperate. But I always try to listen to the science, which tells us that yes, it's super tight, but we still have this small window of time."
Jakob Beyer is a 29-year-old activist of the climate group "Last Generation" and was taken into custody due to his commitment to the climate movement. He has chosen a path that poses a risk not only to himself but also to the movement he supports. Beyer's actions included food donations and participating in demonstrations, but after the climate protection law was overturned by the Constitutional Court, the movement sought new forms of protest. Beyer believes that technological progress alone is not enough to stop climate change. He is determined to speak out and actively fight to secure a better future for the next generation.
