Strukturwandel kann nur mit den Menschen vor Ort verstanden und gestaltet werden. Wie und wo finden wir die klugen Ideen, das beeindruckende Engagement und die belastbaren Netzwerke? Die Lausitzer Zivilgesellschaft: Ausgangspunkt für unsere Spurensuche transdisziplinärer Forschung im Strukturwandel. Wir treffen Soziologin Julia Gabler an der Hochsc…
 
Bhutan macht es vor, aber Deutschland hat so was auch: Einen Index, der nicht nur wirtschaftliches Wachstum misst, sondern auch den Ressourcenverbrauch abzieht, um das Glück der Menschen besser abzubilden. Doch was taugt ein solcher Index? Wir sprechen heute darüber mit zwei Volkswirten am IASS, Jörg Mayer-Ries und Armin Hass. Craig Morris leitet d…
 
Would sustainability be easier if people’s needs didn’t need to be taken into consideration? The way laws and rules are made in the Arctic (where many people live) and the Antarctic (where no one does permanently) sheds light on the role that social sciences play in policymaking, explains IASS Fellow Craig Morris in the final episode of his Potsdam…
 
In these days of “fake news,” the public’s judgement is being called into doubt. But we all make incorrect assumptions about lots of things. On the other hand, in a democracy, why is public participation needed when we could just elect experts to make decisions based on science, asks IASS Senior Fellow Craig Morris.…
 
By 2100, many more people will live on this planet, and a larger percentage of them will live in cities – just not necessarily the ones we currently have. Many of them will gradually have become uninhabitable, requiring the construction of giant new megacities – which has already begun. Can these new cities be made more sustainable? IASS Senior Fel…
 
When it comes to transforming our energy systems, many technical issues are already solved, says Piet Sellke. But in order for this transformation to be successful, different perspectives and interests in society need to be harmonised. So his work at the ENavi project centers around co-creating what he calls "socially robust" knowledge. Learn more …
 
When atmospheric scientist Mark Lawrence visited Kathmandu nearly 10 years ago, he got sick from air pollution - really sick. The Scientific Director of the IASS talked to a local shopkeeper, who told him he and many others also frequently had this horrible cough. Years later this inspired Mark to get his colleague Maheswar Rupakheti on board and s…
 
When people don’t trust each other and their political systems, things essential for sustainability – like walkable cities and resilient communities – move out of reach. But citizens can become active in science in order to improve their own lives, and there are ways to turn warring factions into groups working together. Fixing the climate thus req…
 
Around the world, climate cases are being brought to court. What role do they play? Researcher Patrick Toussaint explains what climate justice is about, and shares his research on the role of marginalized communities in the decision-making process at the climate summits. Spoiler: They don't really have a say yet, he says.…
 
Two big topics at this year's climate summit are the oceans and financing actions against climate change. In Torsten Thiele's research work, both areas merge: The oceans have a huge influence on our global climate, and on human wellbeing. But it takes a lot of money to really understand and protect them. So Torsten is looking into innovative and ho…
 
There’s lots of information about the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Climate Accord, but most of it focuses on the targets themselves, not the process that led to their creation. But if we understand how such policies are negotiated, we can better understand why they fall short in some areas and are breakthroughs in others. By IASS Sen…
 
What’s the best way to raise awareness and engagement about climate change? Should we stress the urgency, thereby risking scaring people away? Or should we emphasize hope – at the risk of understating the challenge? Join IASS Senior Fellow Craig Morris in his talks with lecturers and participants at the Potsdam Summer School for a discussion.…
 
In September 2017, some 40 young professionals from around the world came to Potsdam, Germany, for 10 days of lectures and workshops on the sustainability of cities and communities at the Potsdam Summer School. IASS Senior Fellow Craig Morris recorded their thoughts and conversations with his audio recorder to find out how society can tackle major …
