additional remarks Here we are, each one of us, standing on this great stage that is steadily igniting. Some are afraid of its future weight, and others are merely reciting. There is no autoplay, no single stairway, nor last will arranged. We are all involved and, here to stay in this century’s great drama: “Climate Change”. It is complex, urgent, and the greatest challenge to the humanity of this decade. When has eating meat become worse than burning oil? Or, advocating climate protest more threatening than inequality or populism? Are we really taking meaningful action to combat the climate crisis? Are we, as actors, qualified for this play, or are we just bystanders watching from the sidelines? Maybe we should start changing the script. In this intriguing lecture, we'll cut through the haze of greenwashing and the maze of disinformation. We will analyze the psychology of our action (or rather: our inaction), and delve into the social, political, and economic structures driving - or even impeding -progress. For it is not only about individual action, but the collective movement that can drive a global turnaround against climate change. Don’t miss this chance to get fired up and get ready to act and take on the climate drama!
