Seminar on Climate Justice

in cooperation with the Akademie für Politische Bildung Tutzing
12 - 13 May 2023

The large discrepancy between the countries or population groups that suffer the most from the effects of global warming and those that have contributed the most shows that human-induced climate change is directly linked to issues of equity:

Each generation is affected differently by climate change. The impacts of climate change are felt especially in the Global South, particularly among vulnerable population groups. Whether in urban, suburban or rural areas, the necessary adaptations in terms of living space or mobility present major challenges for policy-makers. In addition, structural change in industry is challenging old business models as well as creating new economic winners and losers.

The seminar addressed the asymmetric distribution of the opportunities and burdens of climate change in the different sectors of the economy and society and aimed to contribute to the realisation of the socio-ecological transformation by developing innovative ideas.
