Anno 2020. Nature is on fire, from Australia to the Ardennes. Forests are felled, no more insects on the windshield, concrete everywhere, a million species are in danger of extinction. A virus turns the world upside down. The exploitation of nature is threatening our existence. Vulnerable groups here and in the South are facing even harder times.
How much longer do we saw off the very branch that supports us? Or do we change course?
Ecopolis 2020 puts the finger on the pulse and looks ahead. What are the post-corona challenges? How do we feel part of nature again? How do we restore the balance? How does this support a vigorous climate and nature policy? Which transitions are necessary ― urban, agricultural, etc. ― for a society that respects people and nature? And gives everyone prospect of a good life.
Ecopolis goes on! Of course, we take into account the current circumstances and corona measures. Which is why we are working on different formats, physical & online.
Save the date and we will keep you informed.
Also this year, we invite a wide range of literary writers, academic experts and civil society thinkers to engage in dialogue. We are proud to present the first names of ECOPOLIS 2020.
