ECOPOLIS 2016 : POWER, POLITICS & CHOCOLATE

Ecopolis, in its pursuit of a sustainable society, opens the 2016 edition with a clear question: Do we know how to cope with environmental challenges and do we have the ability to do so? As sociologist Zygmunt Bauman put it: “Power, in a nutshell, is the ability to get things done, and politics is the ability to decide which things need to be done. But because power and politics are separate people no longer believe in the political system. Power has gone global while politics remains rooted locally. I think the twenty-first century will be devoted to re-uniting power and politics.” We add Chocolate to notions of Power and Politics, referring to human desire, to people behind the system. We also talk about the global chocolate market which, in the context of ecological scarcity, illustrates well the separation between power and politics.

About Ecopolis

Ecopolis, the successor of the Green Book, is the perfect day for all those concerned with the transition to a socio-ecological society to meet each other.

The main focus is on inspired and inspiring books, documentaries and dialogues on ecology, economics and society between writers, scientists and thinkers from civil society. Since ecological challenges cross national and language boundaries, Ecopolis is diverse, international and interactive. We therefore welcome inspiring thinkers from different countries and backgrounds, and challenge our audience as well!
