Transforming science

Our society is currently facing severe and ever intensifying challenges. The climate crisis and the loss of biodiversity threaten our ecological foundations. At the same time, our society gets more and more socially divided.

Is our current scientific system capable of developing solutions for these problems? Which conditions have to be fulfilled so that science can become the engine of the socio-ecological transformation?

I started reflecting on these questions in 2016 when I was appointed the youth representative in the scientific advisory board of Friends of the Earth Germany (BUND). Since then, I co-organized several seminars on the topic of Transformative Science(s). As they have all been very well received, my friend Katharina Ebinger and I decided to write a book introducing young people to the topic.

Since we have our own website for the book, I will only occasionally blog about this project here. Feel free to check it out (it’s in German, though): Wissenschaf(f)t Zukünfte

If you are interested in the project, you can sign up for our newsletter by clicking here – we will send updates about the project around four times a year.

Further, we would be happy if you could share your opinion on our current plans for the book and take part in our 10-minute survey by clicking here! Thanks for your time 🙂
