Ecology and Art: Aesthetic Engagement on Climate Change

This lecture series adresses one of the pressing questions of human kind – climate change. It approaches this issue from different disciplines ranging from law to ethnography. Legislation and especially the Paris Agreement have been a step towards international cooperation in combating climate change – now actions and implementation need to follow. Questions about deforestation, litigation, the circular economy, and sustainable urban planning will be adressed in different regions in the Global South and beyond the West.
