Exploring Planetary Thinking – Seminar Series

When: 18-20h     Where: Online

The Planetary Thinking Working Group, GRADE Sustain Team, University of Giessen, and Forschungskolleg Humanwissenschaften host a seminar series:

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.
