When the clocks reached 11:11 on Thursday, Germany's Carnival entered top gear. Thousands of people gathered in the streets despite bad weather.
With anti-nuclear banners, polar bear costumes and Carnival-style floats, thousands of protesters took to the streets in Bonn to urge governments to do more to combat climate change.
From Carnival to football and even odder hobbies like rabbit-breeding, there's a club for everyone in Germany. Nearly half of Germans belong to one - and the numbers continue too grow.
Energy production, food, mobility, waste: Four videos highlight German innovation in these key areas - projects that, each in their own way, protect the climate. Say hello to Germany's climate innovators.
Several Carnival celebrations have been canceled or cut short due to extreme weather. Thousands of revelers still braved gale-force winds to party on the streets, others took cover in bars.
