Global Citizen is a social action platform for primarily young people facing the most pressing challenges of today such as climate change, environmental protection, education and women’s rights.
In the interview, Jörg talks about the idea behind AfricaWorks, about the economic relations between Africa and Europe and the role of development aid. He also articulates three demands for politics: “Firstly, we must stop subsidizing agriculture in Europe so that African farmers have a chance. Secondly, we must help to improve the power supply in Africa – because electricity is the alpha and omega of entrepreneurship. And thirdly, we need to open the borders and get more people to Germany for education. ”
