@matthias what are good German search words for us to find the right kinds of events to go to - do you know?

I vote that whoever made the excited exclamation mark next to Jacky Ickx goes to the event and interviews people. Am not pointing any fingers but @ivan I think it’s you.

haha, of course it’s me, I’ll see if it is possible - I should be in Milan around those dates. The events above do not list the F1/MotoGP racing events or rallies, but those are also wild car enthousiasts crowds.

do we know anyone in the UK who could go to this event next week? Camp Quirky Tickets ⋆ Quirky Campers Or anyone available to travel? I think this could be a great place to ask questions and record conversations as it’s really focused on a community that needs dependable and easy to repair vehicles plus they do a lot adjustments themselves. If we don’t have anyone who can make it this year, I can plan travel myself poss for next year’s? Alternatively I could ask my journo network in UK but I am not sure what our remunerations for this are. ping @ivan @matthias @nadia

This looks nice, but 13-15 May may be too close.
Let me check with Jos, but it is true we can use it next year too.

@nadia @ivan @jos are you aware of the protests at Autostadt in Wolfburg? With the blessing of IPCC lead author Wolfgang Cramer. Maybe an interesting one to investigate?

Maybe an interview with him rather than with them. Regardless of the point they might have, now they are accompanied by the guys throwing tomatoes on Van Gogh and mashed potatoes on Monet.
It will be difficult to give them any credibility.

They did not organise quite well also, tbh.

We are not in the business of giving people credibility! But it is ethnographically interesting that car events are held to be a symbol for capitalism destroying the planet. How do drivers feel about this? What do they propose to do? How is the circular economy a part of this conversation?

Ok. What did you have in mind, a collective interview/seminar with the nine of them on cars-captialism-climate-circularity, and then written outputs?

This is for @Nica and the team to decide. I am merely happy that car events have become so politically charged, it seems like an opportunity.

@Nica - the interviews from 4WD are on the platform now.

Can you please send a link to where they are? I looked in the Treasure Workspace and didn’t see them…

In fact, they are not in Treasure Workspace but under Treasure’s open category like all the others.
We use Workspace for coordination and sync.

Sorry if I am being daft – I am still not seeing them! The most recent link on the Workspace re-directs back to this thread…

Pinged you here. Ler me know if you don’t see it

Okay – the POPREBEL report is DONE (Hallelujah!) and delivered, so I can turn my full attention back to TREASURE now. Will get started on coding these next week.
