this is d w 2 slides from our land the race begins for a new leader european heads of government to discuss to take over from commission president john the group but are france and germany heading for a showdown over the issue also coming up former u.s. governor arnold schwarzenegger teams up with spanish teacher activists pressured to
1:01 pm
embark at a special climate conference agree and their goal is to raise awareness about the threat to our planet plus the spike in night crime and for 10 gangs of teenagers appear to be carrying out random attacks especially in the capital under what's behind the violence. at a big surprise in german football outsiders union member of lead and make their way into the bundesliga for the 1st time in the books history all of the details of last night's early wrecking play off against stuttgart. i'm sorry kelly welcome to the program leaders are meeting today to talk about who will take over some of the blocks key roles following last week's elections to the european parliament among the jobs up for grabs is commission president a role currently held by zhang called junker german chancellor angela merkel says
1:02 pm
that she wants a decision to be taken quickly but she is at odds with france's president emmanuel mccall over how the candidate should be chosen more on that just a moment but 1st a look at some of the candidates in the running. vest aga to months or veba. the elections are over but the race to succeed as the next commission president has just started. too many he is the front runner manfred veba the lead candidate of the largest group in the problem and the conservative european peoples party despite a loss of $38.00 seats his group and him still claim the e.u.'s top job but brokering a majority in parliament will likely prove difficult for fans to months from the social democrats it will be even more difficult for the dutchman's s n d group came
1:03 pm
in 2nd with a total loss of 40 seats even if he managed to form a coalition with the greens liberals and the left party he would still fall short of a majority in parliament. it is the 1st time in 40 years that the big center right and center left groups aren't able to control a majority of seats in the european parliament so some think she might come out as the winner my kate the best denmark this serving competition commissioner didn't run as an official candidate during the campaign however after her liberal alliance made strong gains she made clear that she is up for the presidency. in the end it will be up to them the leaders of the member states will choose their nominee for the job and it might be somebody nobody has on the list just gets its fragonard d.w. correspondent terry celts who is joining us with a view from brussels atari we have to begin with the role of president of the
1:04 pm
european commission how significant is this job. it's a hugely significant job and it's part of a huge change over that takes place every 5 years with the election of the european parliament and the change in the commission so it's not only the president of the european commission whose job is up for renewal it's also the president of the european council the president of the european parliament and this year coincidentally the president of the european central bank is also up for a change and so you've got this huge bargaining process going on amongst all the european union leaders and that adds a lot of tension to the process but here in brussels the plum post is definitely president of the european commission this is the most visible job day today this person is in charge of the only branch of the e.u. institutions that can propose legislation so that can potentially have a huge impact on all 28 member governments the other thing this person does is choose who gets which commission so each member state will propose a commission or a commission or candidate and then the president of the commission decides who gets
1:05 pm
what job so which country which commissioner is going to be in charge of energy which is going to be in charge of trade or culture in sports or the digital economy so that's really a lot of influence and it really charts the direction for the european union over at least the next 5 years and there is some just disunity we have to mention among european leaders about how the next candidate should be chosen the chancellor of germany angela merkel is pushing for a quick decision however let's have a listen and then i'll get your reaction. to find a solution as quickly as possible because the european parliament will meet at the beginning of july and it would of course be desirable if they were already proposal of the european council so that it could be carried out very quickly. so merkel they're very clearly calling for a quick solution but the main parties ultimately didn't get the big majorities that they had hoped for is this likely to make a finding agreement more difficult. yes finding an agreement on everything is going
1:06 pm
to be more difficult with the fragmentation that we saw in the european parliament result but taking the fight for leader of the european commission this is going to be a really difficult one to solve because as merkel says she wants a quick decision and everybody to be honest wants a quick decision but underscoring that that statement is that she would prefer the system be adjudicated according to the lead cannady system in which each of the political groups has put forward their own candidate now because the european people's party who is headed by german munford bever still has the most seats in parliament there are many including governor himself who say look at then i deserve to be the president of the european commission president french president emmanuel mcclellan is saying wait not so fast i don't agree with this system you know our candidates the margret investee who is heading the liberals group she deserves a shot at it and friends timmermans who is the head of the number 2 political group the socialist and democrat says he's not out of the running yet either so not only
1:07 pm
is there an argument over who it should be but as you mentioned over how that person person should be chosen and we have to mention i mean that arguing has been quite public france and germany not normally airing this out in the open why is this happening now. the european parliament elections just wrapped up sunday so it's only become obvious now that the 2 major political groups the european peoples party on the social democrats no longer have the sheer numbers to push through their or their decisions so there have to they're having to talk to everyone else and that's opened up the process significantly the greens say that they should have a bigger say in this we just heard from scott keller who says you know i really would like to see a woman in charge clearly throwing her weight behind margaret divestiture as others have done so yeah it's really open now after the fact that the 2 political groups no longer can make decisions on their own teri schultz in brussels thank you terry . now the austrian world summit on climate action is
1:08 pm
currently underway in vienna organizers are urging world leaders to stick to the agreements outlined in the paris accord and publish new commitments by next year it is the brainchild of former california governor arnold schwarzenegger also in attendance as swedish climate activists went into back she's inspired tens of thousands of young people around the world with her fridays for future school strike. in her speech she had a stark message for the audience during the last months millions of children have been school striking with the climate gaining lots of attention for the climate crisis but we children are not leaders nor are the scientists unfortunately. but many of you here today are. presidents celebrities politicians c.e.o.'s and journalists
1:09 pm
people listen to you. they are influenced by you. and therefore you have an enormous responsibility. and let's be honest this is a responsibility that most of you have failed to take and let's talk now about that enormous responsibility i'm joined by my colleague john from our environment desk i mean you really see it there a call for action as we've heard from her time and time again how high is the hope for that action right now i think is very high and increasingly it's growing within europe for instance on the back of these european elections where green party source to cross the continent and with things like christian birthright is the future movement for instance in the u.k. this extinction rebellion protest where they've shut down very i think people are really starting to recognise the importance of climate change and that daily lives
1:10 pm
and i start them on more from governments and officials try to do something about it so they're demanding more but you know so far we haven't really seen that sort of dramatic action but one place where we are at least seeing something like to highlight that right now is the european state of luxembourg they're taking the bus or the tram may soon be free of charge to make more people renounce their cars have a look. at another traffic jam in luxembourg the daily news since but the minister for mobility says this is going to change luxembourg is said to become the 1st country in the world to offer free use of on public transport nationwide by 2020. we simply have to understand that a car is not always the ideal mode of transport in urban areas of course we have to offer people alternatives and that means we have to invest a lot more in the studio and expanding the rail network alone will cost luxembourg around 2200000000 euros the goal is to make it possible to transfer to the tram bus
1:11 pm
or bike all electric of course in particular the idea is to get the 200000 commuters who travel daily from belgium france and germany 70. percent of them by car to switch to public transit to achieve this park and ride spaces are being doubled and car lanes are being replaced by tram lines. and the cost when office space was being planned you had to provide a minimum number of parking spaces a few years ago we turned this around so now the number of parking spots is limited . in the. pits out in front of the transport authorities control center the hub of data from across the system if there are delays additional vehicles are dispatched after all people will only switch to public transport if they can count on quality and service but ticket
1:12 pm
machines will remain at the train stations those who prefer to ride 1st class will still have to pay. ok so just one initiative there i mean but you know if we look at in the grand scheme of things really just a drop in the bucket reducing carbon emissions what else needs to be done. so much more needs to be done but it's very hard to talk about it concretely without sort of understanding how interlinked all these different places so one of the big issues and this may be the focus of the conference things like saving biodiversity and so the damage we're doing to make sure. but one of the problems i think a lot of the activists find all of the scientists find is that because these issues the 7th link but they're also quite abstract it's very difficult for people to really engage with them and that's why one of the fixes of the conference which i thought was great interesting is about climate communication and how to get people to care about how to get people to take action on it and i think that's one thing
1:13 pm
we see with figures like. and gratitude. i mean they come from completely different backgrounds they've got the 71 year old action body builder and a 16 year old school go. you both have extreme impacts all over the world with really being able to communicate a message around climate but scientists say they're struggling to get across. i think as a focus that definitely give them more room to be able to actually engage with people and get them to go through those maybe more dense illusions around say green financing or divestment from fossil fuels and so on i don't know from our environment desk thank you thanks. let's go check now some other stories making news around the world at least 40 people have been killed in prison riots in brazil authorities say that deadly clashes were sparked by fights between rival gangs in 3 different jails across the town of mag now the government has mobilized additional staff to secure the person. a victory
1:14 pm

1:15 pm
response. to new day a new crime scene last night here in east london a 15 year old was stabbed to death with a knife. social worker paul mckenzie has visited many such crime scenes but this time it really gets to him the victim was afraid the business you were drunk. too much and didn't see these these are everywhere you see a bunch of flowers years ago and it meant something to you really so i went over there and read the request. is too many to read more the only because somebody wanted to prove something to somebody else. that's that's the sad thing is that life has become a point system. and now somebody somewhere say. they know that and that person. often it's a case of rivalry between members of youth gangs but innocent bystanders can also

fall victim to knife crime and some guy knifing someone is proof a youngster is worth enough belonging to a guy who was. looking at 13 years old been arrested for not but. what happened. mackenzie talks to gang members and makes videos to show how quickly things are deteriorating in some parts of london. why do you carry a 15 inch not big and you get scared but if you say. cause i don't want someone put up with me let china. cure me so i'll kill him. i don't want to die. paul mackenzie feels that the government doesn't take knife crime seriously enough supports an initiative which demands that the government treat the violence as a national emergency you know you make. this was my son i say it was my motives in

1:23 pm
they're in a sort of summiting they kill themselves and it's turned into a bad thing and i think people should really look into it. the reason for the sneaking lines of mountaineers at the top of the world a record number of parent and a narrow window of good weather the delays made the already stream conditioned worse according to this climber who has the scars to prove it. but i had to wait a while for the traffic to decrease so we could go. back because of that i was very cold and i was protecting myself and. all that if there was no traffic then maybe this frostbite would not have happened that. robin fisher is one of the 11 people to have died this season he shot this video describing the conditions as he
