About Us

Do you know this feeling? Do you also wonder why except through all the urgency that is being shown in the media there are still no results in putting an end to the climate crisis?We are sick of leaving this problem to the ones whose words sound so sophisticated but their actions show differently...Therefore, we are searching for the action-takers in this crisis. The ones who act despite the overwhelming forces coming against them!We are your hosts - Nicolaj Grabert and Maximilian Lehmann and we have decided to go out and interview the change-makers of our time.

Latest Episodes

Kwame Yamgnane - Co-Founder of the most successful Coding School, 42: The Blueprint to solve any real-world problem?

Today our host Nicolaj is interviewing Kwame Yamgnane - a real powerhouse in the field of education who despite a lot opposing winds has created one of the world’s most successful coding schools which is endorsed by almost every high profile Entrepreneur in the Silicon Valley. Not only has the school consistently created exceptional talent in the field of software development, but it has done so without any professor holding a lecture in front of their students... It is all done purely through Peer-to-peer learning. Because according to Kwame his students learn best by learning the knowledge "by creating the knowledge yourself." In this podcast you will get a deep insight into how the school works and which principles the educational system is governed. Find out what makes the difference between a student who learns from an expert and who then applies it to the real world or a student who explores a field on his own and then becomes a true MASTER. Find out... 1. Why our current education has been working so well during the time of industrialization but why we will face many challenges getting into the digital age 2. Which massive barriers Kwame and his team had to overcome despite being funded by famous french billionaire Xavier Neil 3. Why the principles of 42 cannot just be applied to any other field 4. Ideas on how École 42 could help solve climate change 5. Why in 2100 we might be facing the biggest crisis humanity ever faced (greater than climate change?!) Check out the school(s) by Kwame: https://www.42.us.org/ https://www.epitech.eu/de/ Please leave a 5-star review if you enjoyed this episode. See you in the next one. ;)

Lubomila Jordanova - CEO, PlanA.earth: Big Data of Climate Change to take ACTION

Today we were fortunate to have an interview with Lubomila Jordanova. She and her team have been crunching the numbers for the last 2 years to understand the impacts of climate change on a data-driven level. Even though we might need these forces as well but for her it is not enough to occupy bridges or to go out and strike. She wants everyone of use to be empowered to take ACTION. To become an expert at a small area that helps mitigate climate change. Because she also noticed that she was explaining the same things over and over again, she built an academy, what she calls the encyclopedia of climate change. You should check out the website of PlanA and get a better understanding of the global movements that are happening ranging from big businesses, startups to NGOs. Thanks for having us, Lubomila.

Check out 1000s of case studies on https://circle-lab.com/ 3. Why it is highly necessary to protest but why even a 12-year old in Bali can have an impact!

Andreas Kuhlmann - CEO of the German Energy Agency (dena): Why we need more young people who CHOOSE to CHANGE

Why history repeats itself and why we did not change in 1992 when the "Earth Day" happened. >> Listen to this podcast and find out why young people need to step up their game. << In June 1992 leaders all over the world were meeting and discussed specific agreements on how environmental preservation could be balanced with economic needs. The result: In the last two decades we have emitted more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere than we have ever done before... So we look at the media and we think that we are at the brink of change... We might expect that now with the media covering young leaders like Greta Thunberg and others from organizations like Fridays For Future, Sunrise or Extinction Rebellion we are closer to a government doing the right decisions. When in fact we really aren't. We might be on the track to get there and we might also be closer than ever before... But especially when Andreas Kuhlmann shared his experience when he attended the Earth Day which happened in June 1992 the issue got clear. We have seen that before. What is currently going on all over the world including the Climate Action Summit in New York.. was all done before.

Fritz B. Simon - Organisationsberater, Psychotherapeut und Autor: Warum Massenbewegungen Organisationen werden müssen

In dieser Folge trifft Nicolaj auf Fritz B. Simon, der ihm einen Exkurs in die Welt der Organisationsberatung bereitet. Er teilt Einblicke aus seinem Buch: Anleitung zum Populismus: oder: Ergreifen Sie die Macht! Auch wenn das recht extrem klingt, ist Populismus etwas, was Fritz B. Simon nicht unterstützt, vielmehr zeigt er anhand der Prinzipien von "effektivem" Populismus die Prinzipien für eine starke Organisation, und wie Bewegungen, wie FridaysForFuture durch eine optimierte Organisation dafür sorgen können nachhaltig Energie in ihre Sache zu investieren. In dieser Folge lernst du: * Warum Greenpeace als Beratungsunternehmen gescheitert ist und warum immer ein Feindbild im Populismus nötig ist * Warum eine ansprechende Vision für die Zukunft nicht ausreicht, um Massen zu bewegen * Warum das "Wozu" wichtiger ist als das "Warum" * Welche Qualitäten und Komponenten für eine effektive Organisation nötig sein Wie immer freuen wir uns auf deinen Kommentar bei Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/mother_earths_heroes/ Schaue auch gerne in unseren Live Ticker zur Climate Action Week in New York.
