Podcast. With Simon Baumgart (Fridays for Future) and Alexander Fechner (Daimler AG)

In the IAA special of the “Lane Change” podcast, Simon Baumgart, co-organizer of the “Fridays for Future” protests in Karlsruhe, and Alexander Fechner, chairperson of Daimler’s youth and apprentice representative organization, discuss political commitment, climate protection and the future of mobility with moderator Jessica Abt.
