Germany wants to become climate-neutral by 2045, the EU by 2050. Both targets became legally binding in 2021, an important breakthrough on the way to structural transformation to a climate-friendly economy. What further breakthroughs are needed to anchor this transformation in society and enable its implementation? How can the responsibility of individuals as well as economic actors for climate protection be realized?
This event is part of the "Knowledge for Change" event series for the 10th anniversary of Ecornet.
Ten years ago, leading independent institutes in environmental and sustainability research in Germany joined forces to form the Ecological Research Network (Ecornet) in order to bring their combined knowledge to the scientific community and society. With their practice-oriented, transdisciplinary research, the Ecornet institutes have been accompanying – and actively shaping – socio-ecological change for decades.
