pillars of networking work

Art & Culture

Art and culture see themselves as pioneers of society. They can act as essential multipliers on a broad social level...

A mirror is held up to society and places are created where people can negotiate what the future should look like and how it can be shaped. 

Art and culture are about stories. Depending on what we tell, we can decide who we want to be. The area of ​​art and culture includes institutions from the areas of museums (museums), theaters (theaters), music (opera/concert halls) and literature (libraries), associations of members of these professional groups, e.g.: ensemble network (theater), Museums4Future (museums), ICOM young professionals (museums), Lebenslaute (music), groups of art and culture professionals (bands, collectives, festivals) and individuals in various powerful positions (e.g. cultural politicians, filmmakers).

Act together

Art and culture have a strong mediating position and should take a stand. Dialogue and cooperation with the last generation offer this opportunity. The collaboration conveys political awareness and zeitgeist to the outside world and creates discourse.


School & Education

In the 2022/23 school year, a total of around 8,69 million students attended a general education school in Germany. These children and young people will experience the consequences of the climate catastrophe most clearly...

Nevertheless, the topic is often only dealt with marginally in lessons because it does not occupy a central place in the curricula of the federal states. However, teachers have the opportunity and the right to discuss the climate catastrophe in class and explain their position on it.

Act together

Together with schools and other educational institutions, the Last Generation organizes lectures and workshops as education for sustainable development. For school projects and homework, people from the last generation are available to the students for interviews and to answer questions. Many collaborations have already taken place. School classes will have the opportunity to attend court proceedings to see for themselves how our courts deal with peaceful civil disobedience in the face of climate catastrophe.


climate justice movement

The concept of climate justice considers the climate catastrophe in connection with social justice, equality and human rights...

The dire consequences for low-income people and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) communities, people least responsible for the problem, as well as ecosystems worldwide, require economic and social transformation.

Climate justice movements create social pressure on politics and business through various forms of action and dialogue with the aim of initiating this transformation and holding the winners of the use of fossil energies and unjust economic relations accountable. This draws public attention to the climate catastrophe.

Act together

A united climate justice movement offers an enormous pool of resources, experience and assertiveness. By exchanging experiences and knowledge, ideas and impulses for action can be put into motion. By querying needs and wishes, common concepts can be developed that preserve the autonomy of each movement and thus support the diversity of the movement and use it in its entirety. We want to create a common image, strengthen each other, network and coordinate in a coordinated manner in order to create great synergies and be able to build on a broad and solidarity-based climate justice movement.



Agriculture is directly feeling the effects of climate change and unsustainable farming...

Farmers face challenges: phases of extreme drought and extreme wetness, heavy rain, forest fires, insect deaths, declining soil quality, nitrate pollution.

All of this requires a rethink in various areas of the economy, which many farmers are willing to do if the right political course makes it possible.


faith communities

For many Christians, the preservation of creation is a central point of their faith. The world is changing irretrievably due to climate catastrophe and species extinction...

Church networking website

It is our job to stand on the side of those who are already suffering from the consequences of these changes. Just as Jesus takes sides with people who are marginalized, who suffer and are oppressed by the powerful, Christians also have the task of working for justice - socially and ecologically.

Act together

The church has great influence and can mobilize many people. In the past, it has repeatedly been a driving factor in civil resistance movements and can play an important mediating role when we speak to politicians, but also fundamentally in the interpersonal area. 

The urgency of the climate catastrophe and the concerns of the last generation can be pointed out in church services and church events, but various events and services can also be planned and carried out together with people of the last generation. Support can be provided in the area of ​​pastoral care: Accompanying people to their court date or greeting them in front of the prison collection point, offering discussions for people of the last generation. Communities can provide rooms for meetings or a “kitchen for everyone”.



In the context of the climate catastrophe, natural sciences and technology are the scientific areas that support the urgency of action with facts and provide realistic solutions...

Against the background of diverse crises, social and ecological, that affect all areas of life, the social sciences, sociology, communication and media sciences, art and design have a lot of potential and therefore power and responsibility.

Science has various functions in society: conveying information, educating, shaping values ​​and creating alternative concepts. Science has great power in these areas of responsibility. It can fill spaces for the necessary discourse about wishes, needs and demands in the context of the climate crisis. It can make injustice visible and encourage people to take part in public discourse. This power can be used to strengthen and change discourse. 

Act together

The Last Generation Science Network organizes scientific support for forms of protest. The potential of a scientific educational mission is seen with regard to the role and importance of an “active civil society”. The science network sees itself as a networking structure for the civil disobedience of the last generation, as a bridge between science and structures such as Scientists4Future, ScientistRebellion, universities and other scientific institutions.


Skilled trades

Extreme weather, such as floods and heat, complicates working conditions and presents the construction industry with ever greater challenges...

Increasingly hotter heatwaves in summer are incompatible with work on construction sites. Due to low wages and working conditions, professions become less attractive and are socially unfair.

A large proportion of greenhouse gas emissions arise in the concrete sector. Since the process can hardly be designed to reduce emissions, a rethink towards sustainable building materials is essential. Renovations are necessary for buildings that must take building regulations and ecological aspects into account. 

Act together

Through dialogue and collaboration, we develop mutual understanding of the challenges of the future and common options for action.



Politics is responsible for creating framework conditions in which a transformation to a sustainable and socially just society can take place...

Many politicians know that the climate catastrophe is a threat to our democracy and our livelihoods. At the same time, there is a lack of understanding of what effective measures are and how small the window of opportunity for action is. 

By working with lobby associations, politicians themselves often stand in the way of a sustainable future. At the same time, social injustice and insecurity due to advancing climate change are being used by anti-democratic forces to weaken the stability of society.

Act together

Through dialogue and collaboration, we develop mutual understanding of the challenges of the future and common options for action.


Health systems

Climate catastrophe is the greatest threat to human health. Every area of ​​health is directly or indirectly affected by the transgression of planetary boundaries...

These include the risk of heat, floods, medication shortages, cardiovascular disease, the spread of disease and a general increase in psychological stress.

Actors and interest groups in the health system respond with press releases, work on preventive measures and awareness campaigns about the serious health risks. Unfortunately, there is little press response and the connection between climate and health is hardly discussed or addressed. (see Climate Pact for Health and the broad signing of the Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty).

Act together

The aim of the network is to communicate the climate emergency together with associations, institutions and employees and to address the federal government. This can take the form of position papers, social media posts, climate strikes, solidarity actions or participation in protests in uniform, among other things. 

Doctors, nurses, psychologists and other medical professions have the greatest respect in society and their mandate reaches people from all walks of life.

Through networking campaigns, the self-administration's warnings are made more visible and, together with associations, institutions and initiatives, the need for climate protection - as health protection - is brought into the public discussion.



Celebrities are role models whose words and actions have social weight...

Through media reach and their own networks, they can have a decisive influence on how the climate catastrophe is perceived by the general public.

People listen to a familiar face from the internet, film or music scene. It is important to accept this trust responsibly and to help make the consequences of the climate catastrophe visible, to give legitimacy to civil resistance and to advocate for society to come together: Only through more justice - social and ecological - can we address the crises of our time. 

Act together

Solidarity can be shown by sharing social media posts from the last generation, commenting on actions and sharing your own statements. At events you can access the demand of the last generation to Federal President Steinmeier and offers to talk to people of the last generation are made. Together we can increase the pressure on the media and government and increase the likelihood that people will take a stand.



By profession, police officers are the ones who first have to endure social tensions...

These are fueled by the climate emergency and social injustice, while attempts by anti-democratic actors to undermine our democracy are increasing. Here too, police officers are the focus of hardening social fronts.

Act together

The aim of the police dialogue is to build the bridges that our government does not know how to build. We ask the question: What can police officers do both privately and professionally? Police officers in particular are not only affected, but they also have opportunities and duties that make them guardians of our democracy. Through dialogue and de-escalation, we want to achieve mutual understanding between the police and protesters.



The climate catastrophe threatens our livelihoods and will also erode our social systems...

This “catastrophe” is a constantly accelerating deterioration condition. We humans are involved in business and working life and want stability, balance and good communication for successful development. 

The Last Generation asks the question of how organizations and people in the economy can contribute to resolutely and effectively bringing the increasing imbalance in livelihoods and the resulting transformation into harmony with human needs - fairly and equitably away from the fossil fuel economy.

Act together

The aim of networking the last generation in the area of ​​business is to get in touch, together with decision-makers, designers and those working in the economy, to take responsibility as citizens with the desire to shape things and take effective action to protect the basis of life.

The economic sector is particularly challenged because, on the one hand, the increasing loss of stability has a particularly strong impact and, on the other hand, significant amounts of greenhouse gases are emitted.

In business, the separation between people and activity is not possible. Therefore, there is no neutral behavior, no “business as usual” in the climate catastrophe.

The last generation is ready for cooperation with companies, designers and people – for the greatest possible effectiveness.
