In Berlin, people laugh at Ascension Day for Climate – at the world’s first comedy festival that is entirely dedicated to sustainable development and climate.
For four days at the Schillertheater on Kurfürstendamm, more than 50 comedians will discuss with traders from the cultural sector, and then in a humorous way to introduce viewers to the topic of climate protection: entertainment with attitude. The patron of the festival is dr. Eckhart von Hirschhausen.
Laughter Parade: Demonstrate with fun and humor for greater sustainability and the fight against climate change
