When is civil disobedience a legitimate democratic tool and where are the limits? What is the mission of schools in the face of escalating protests in the climate and energy crisis?

The panel discussion "Civil Disobedience in Schools" is primary intended to provide orientation for teachers and school administrators.

Parents and school students are also welcome to participate in the discussion.


Henning Jeschke is co-founder of Last Generation - an organization that practices civil disobedience against the fossil fuel madness of our present. "A courageous decision can trigger a debate. If you don't take the opportunity, you make yourself complicit in the destruction of people in the Global South."
