“There are always people within their reference group who say that a change is not possible without having tried it at all.”
(Dana Giesecke, Futurzwei – Stiftung Zukunftsfähigkeit, in: the architect 3/2019)

On the occasion of the presentation of the current issue of the magazine der architekt 3/19, Katharina Beyerl (IASS, Potsdam) and Dana Giesecke (Futurzwei, Berlin) discuss in German with David Kasparek (editor of the architekt) the possibilities of putting the spaceship Earth on course in the series “We need to talk”.
