Weitblick: Episode 10 and 11 of our podcast series in german is online

Podcast "Weitblick"

This time we have a conversation with Prof. Dr. Dr. Olaf Kühne, Chair of Urban and Regional Development at the Erhard Karls University in Tübingen. Due to the scope and thematic focus, this conversation is divided into two episodes:

In episode 10, we talk to him about landscape as a socially constructed concept, positivist and essentialist understandings of landscape, and landscape-related values and norms, among other topics.

In episode 11, we address questions about prevailing understandings of landscape, conflicts and power in the social relationship to landscapes, and social acceptance of landscape changes.

Saving energy as the key to energy security – sufficiency as a strategy

Scientists and representatives of civil society are calling on policymakers and society to make energy sufficiency a central principle of energy policy. This means reducing our energy demand - by changes in individual and collective consumption behavior that are effective in the short term, as well as by establishing structures that foster sufficiency in the medium term. This makes our society more independent in terms of energy supply, serves climate protection and has positive side effects for landscapes and biodiversity. Many measures can already be taken in the short term and therefore have an immediate effect. The addressees are all citizens and companies, but above all political decision-makers are addressed, who are responsible for creating suitable framework conditions for a peaceful and livable future.
