Planetary Thinking Working Group (Goethe University, Senckenberg, and ISOE) in cooperation with University of Giessen, Forschungskolleg Humanwissenschaften, and GRADE Sustain presents an online seminar series during the Summer 2021 Semester:
We need a paradigm shift to develop solutions to global challenges such as climate change, biodiversity loss, pollution and decline of natural resources. We call this paradigm shift – Planetary Thinking. It involves four levels: new self-understanding, new thinking, new solutions, and new processes. These levels are explored and connected through an interdisciplinary collaboration between natural sciences, social sciences, the humanities, and arts.
The seminar series features four presentations by natural and social scientists who present how planetary thinking influences their research. The seminar includes a 30-minute presentation and a 30-minute question and answer session.
The dates and topics of each presentation, as well as registration, can be found here .
