Environmental Action Site: Summer Festival 2021
“Klar zur Wende”(“Ready about”) is the command to change course.
The goal: Bavaria becomes climate-neutral and thus independent of coal, gas and oil. Start of the energy turnaround. Time is pressing!
The place where decisions are made: Why it made sense to set up a Bavarian State Chancellery at Tollwood. Visit Markus Söder in his office? Listening on the phone to his conversation with Hubert Aiwanger, who is arguing about the 10H rule, which our Minister-President is sticking to and which is blocking Bavaria’s wind power potential and thus the entire electricity transition of the Free State? That was the case at the Tollwood Summer Festival 2022. Because we in Bavaria urgently need the energy turnaround, we installed the site of the political decision needed for it at the festival as a small-scale replica. We built a place of action that, not without coincidence, resembles the office of the Minister President in the State Chancellery, the place where the most important decisions for Bavaria are made.
And we had in our ears the sentence of the Minister President, which he always cites in defence of the absurd 10H rule: “Bavaria is not a wind country!” In this small state chancellery, experts from BUND Naturschutz and Greenpeace were waiting for interested Tollwood visitors to explain why the Bavarian Minister President is wrong here. For example, the long-refuted argument that wind turbines are the deadliest danger to our bird populations. Or the inaccurate justification that Bavaria has already made its contribution to the nationwide energy transition, that all potentials have been exhausted. Bavaria can do more! How can the turnaround succeed? You could find out at the action site State Chancellery. And indeed, our Minister President came by in person to take a look at his alternative workplace.
The action site was created in cooperation with BUND Naturschutz in Bayern and Greenpeace.
