Young people are getting more involved with serious topics. With “New Generation”, Frankfurter Buchmesse gives a place to listen to this new voice

Young people talk with different actors from the young adult book field. Cornelia Funke discusses with 14 years old Mirai about environment and about writing and creating new worlds. Arena Verlag gets involved for the protection of the environment and invites its author Katja Brandis as a best practice example. How can we produce books without impacting the climate? Arena Verlag gives us insight in the book production. Is it possible to bring football and books together? All those topics are part of “New Generation”, the platform of Frankfurter Buchmesse for young people and from young people. In the end, we invited Wapikoni from Canada to present themselves.
