Many people do not feel affected by climate change. They continue to live the way they have been living. Even those who recognize the problem often find it difficult to make sustainable consumption choices in their hectic daily lives or because of societal expectations.
The demand for decadent luxury reinforces immense emissions of climate-damaging greenhouse gases, said economist Nico Paech of the University of Siegen. “It’s cruises, it’s SUVs, it’s air travel, it’s digital electronics, and it’s the demand for even more housing.” This, he said, is pure convenience that cannot be justified as satisfying essential basic needs.(SPON DEC. 1, 2019)
The government fears being voted out of office if it takes major measures. The lobby is putting on the brakes. Some people think you can solve everything with technology on the side. Scientists and committed people warn and demand political and personal changes. The outstanding changes are big. Society needs transformation.
What are the choices driven by comfort, what are their consequences, what are the reasons for our actions, and how can we forge new paths as individuals and as a community?

|Lecture short text
The permanent overstepping of planetary boundaries not only overtaxes the climate and the environment, but also leads economically, socially and culturally into a dead end. More and more people are becoming aware that the prevailing forms of economic activity, consumption patterns and lifestyles in modern societies are already causing the economic and social costs of environmental degradation to rise immeasurably, and will thus severely restrict the scope for a good, successful life for present and, above all, future generations. Germany must set out on the path to a sustainable society. Environmental policy is thus increasingly becoming an extended social and cultural policy. But what does Germany need to achieve a culture for sustainability? And what new impulses can arise from an increased interplay between digitality and art for a cultural dynamization of the socio-ecological transformation? Does this result in starting points for a cultural (political) economic stimulus program that can lead to new forms of aestheticizing innovation as well as social experiments for a digital culture of sustainability?
