The implementation of the socio-ecological transformation has arrived in society. Almost everyone would agree that climate protection is an important issue. But the debate about what exactly this should look like is heated ("heating hammer", speed limit, climate money, ...).
We asked ourselves what role socio-political actors such as trade unions, social and welfare organizations, church organizations, environmental associations and the climate movement play and could play in the current climate policy debate. In a project funded by the Allianz Foundation, we, Gerd and Julia from the Berlin Governance Platform, addressed this question and went in search of opinions, experiences, success stories and failures.
As part of this project, we conducted over 25 interviews with representatives of major civil society actors. We also asked people from foundations and networks, as well as academics, for their assessments.
Socio-political actors in Germany are increasingly working together to advance the socio-ecological transformation. We explore the opportunities of these alliances and alliances to provide advice and positive examples. In a workshop, we want to discuss a topic that was prominently mentioned in almost all interviews: the tension between headquarters and member base or employees. The aim of the workshop is to provide impulses for daily work, to offer networking opportunities with other actors, and to exchange tips.
The workshop "Climate. Politics. Social." will take place on
Thu 22.06, 11:00 - 12:30
online, via Zoom. Feel free to contact us if you want to be part of it!
