Ideas and News on Sustainability, Political Ecology and Global Fairness
Welcome to my Website. The need to transform our societies towards sustainable development is becoming more and more urgent. Climate change, biodiversity, energy transition, resource conservation and environmental justice, all these issues are pressing and start to shape the political agenda. Therefore technological change is as important as lifestyle change and cultural change and a new economic order, that serves people and does not oppress, functionalize and alienate them from social and environmental needs. On this website, I want to share my ideas and experiences in the field of sustainable development in the scientific and political arena with you. Comments are welcome.
