On the Way to a Sustainable Society – On Processes of Abolition and Renewal

Opening panel of the German-language series of talks and lectures "EXIT. The Art of Staying"

June 14, 2021

The sustainable transformation of our society is accompanied by processes of "phasing out" (exnovation) and "renewing" (innovation). The nuclear and coal phase-out, the much-discussed phase-out of the internal combustion engine, the spread of electromobility and the expansion of renewable energies are just a few examples of such processes. Some transformation processes also take place on a small scale, "right on our doorstep," when urban community gardens or pup-up bike paths are created, for example. It is clear that such processes are not without conflict, as established interests are called into question, path dependencies are broken, and previously unquestioned notions of normality are put up for discussion. We want to discuss this as well as the social possibilities and limits of shaping the abolition and renewal with scientists, representatives from civil society and all those present.

Discussion panel with Dr. Julia Teebken (Berlin), Dr. Stephanie Wunder (Berlin), Gerolf Hanke (Freiburg), Dr. Martin David (Lüneburg), Dr. Johanna Kramm (Frankfurt).
