Activists of all generations unite! With the same goals, we are designing an alternative to Greta Thunberg's "Fridays for Future". While this movement is largely age-homogeneous, accuses its parents' generation, and relies on renunciation as a solution, we demand intergenerational cooperation, bracket moral arguments, believe in the power of innovation and make dialogue qua digital media strong. Our project is provocative and playful, as an opportunity to reflect on the ecologically and politically complex problem we are addressing today. As a result, we will present the name of the (fictitious) new alliance, its program, a manifesto, a flag, an anthem, a "key visual", posters, flyers, banners a strategy for the (digital) dialogue as well as the "pro's and con's" of the dogmas.
