aka Ministry of Life:

The \"Ministry of Life\" with its two pillars \"environment\" and \"agriculture\" is simply tailor-made for the farmers’ son from the Lower Austrian region Weinviertel, for it is exactly because he has been marked by his farming environment that he has become a convinced advocate of the socio-ecological idea. \"Managing with nature and not against it, thinking in terms of generations, and saving resources, this is a fundamental conception which is deeply rooted in the farming community, and I will define my environmental and agricultural policies exactly on the basis of this fundamental conception.\"
