Protest on the street takes many forms. Often, the Fridays for Future demos are vibrant events with music being played, speeches hold, and slogans chanted. Conversations between participants occur spontaneously, and a continuation would often be desired. This is especially the case in conversations between completely different people. Dialogue can change perceptions and clichéd ideas about somebody else fundamentally. With PLAY AND REWIND we created a space for dialogue between members of two different groups that were/are revolutionary at their time: members of Fridays for Future and of the ‘68 generation. In PLAY AND REWIND we discussed the fears, the frustrations, and the incredulous amazement about the political persistence in stuck structures. And we were seeking strategies to overcome these challenges – in the past, and in the present.
From January to June 2020 we organized a series of dialogue events between members of the ‘68 generation and members of the Fridays for Future generation.

2050 is the horizon of today’s climate policy. Most goals, plans, and actions of the present time are aimed at this date. Germany should then be carbon neutral, and a global transformation of lifestyles and the economic system should have taken place. In a certain sense, 2050 is the end of the future we are talking about today.
In 2051 this future will have become past. In that year, Munich will become the center of a global discussion of the past when the “2051 Munich Climate Conference” takes. The symposium has the mandate to study the knowledge and discourses on climate change from the time when the Paris Climate Agreement came into effect – today.
The 2051 Munich Climate Conference is a gathering of scientists, researchers, and scholars concerned about the challenge of anthropogenic climate change. It will take place on 12-13 June 2021 as a combined online and live event, and be open to the general public.
The Call for Papers is out since mid-October 2020. Further information can be found on Munich 2051.
