w let's start with friday's for future what your party is feeling about these demonstrations well 1st of all we have to say that they used generation that is inspiring so many politicians to ward small climate action is great however what when we see the changes we see in the movement in germany right now it's still good that we challenge that there's a challenge posed by them to was put in to act to do more but on the other hand there are movements within the movement right now that are going democratic that are going to watson and see the market oriented approach and that that is moving away from the agenda is that a more come for more climate change and jojo your party's leader has tweeted a tweet it in german but it in english i think political engagement of students is great however children and adolescents cannot be expected to see all global context the technically meaningful and the economically feasible this is
