Ecological Challenges Conference
Environmental movements use the slogan “System Change, not Climate Change.” It points out that international negotiations and technological innovations repeatedly fail to reduce carbon emissions levels, and that our societies need to be profoundly transformed to prevent disastrous climate change. At Ecological Challenges, we take this as a point of departure and focus on questions that relate to systemic change. - What kind of systemic alternatives are desirable and feasible in the economic, political, social, and cultural spheres? - What systems have to change, and why is it so hard to change them? - What strategies could environmental movements adopt in order to achieve system change?
