About "The Food Savers":

More than half of all food ends up in the trash! With this result, the documentary "Taste the Waste" (2011) shocked and triggered a heated public debate. Since then, big plans have been made. But there have been few concrete political steps so far. Why is that? Valentin Thurn investigates and searches for solutions throughout Europe. In the process, he meets many people who no longer want to wait for politicians to act on this important issue of the future.

About "Generation Forest Occupiers":

The Dannenröder Forest is to be cleared for the expansion of the A49. Climate activists from all over Europe are occupying the forest to prevent the clearing. They are supported by villagers and citizens' initiatives who have been fighting against the highway expansion for decades. When thousands of police arrive to clear the forest occupation in November 2020, the conflict comes to a head.
