For the second talk of the Lecture Series “After Sustainability” organized by the Center for sustainable society research (CSS) at Universität Hamburg, we are very happy to welcome Prof. Frank Biermann (Utrecht University), founder of the Earth System Governance Project, for a lecture on
“From Environmental Policy to Earth System Governance?“
Date: 6 July 2021, 06:30 PM (Berlin time) via Zoom Webinar
Registration is open for all via firstname.lastname@example.org
Abstract: The mainstream “environmental policy” paradigm can no longer capture the myriad transformations and interconnections of our planetary systems. Which new concepts are available? What are the central questions for the social sciences to “navigate the Anthropocene”? In this talk, Frank Biermann develops his vision of new governance to cope with the Anthropocene challenges of the 21st century, covering important issues such as planetary justice, planetary boundaries and the role of the Sustainable Development Goals, the need to decolonize sustainability discourses, and the dangers of the increasing normalization of geoengineering.
