Udo Großwendt isn't the least bit excited, even if it doesn't happen every day that he meets with someone like Environment Minister Untersteller from state politics.

He has a dinner date with the Baden-Württemberg Environment Minister Franz Untersteller. Udo Großwendt won the exclusive meal in a competition run by the Baden-Württemberg Development Cooperation Foundation (SEZ).

The meeting point is the Stuttgart restaurant AMBIENTE AFRIKA. A first for both men, as they have never eaten African food before. Franz Untersteller is looking forward to the meeting and especially to the conversation with Udo Großwendt; For him, something like this is rare, “because I usually don’t have time for dinner outside of my professional obligations.” For the winner of the SEZ competition, eating together with the Baden-Württemberg Environment Minister was a complete success. “The evening with Mr. Untersteller was very entertaining and informative. Through my professional work, we quickly found topics that affected both of us. But personal questions weren’t taboo either,” he reports.
