How to design transition pathways to a more sustainable society? The Wuppertal Institute unites climate, environment and resource related aspects in its research and links ecological issues with those of an economic and social transformation. Here you find the discussed topics:
The future needs the right knowledge. The world needs a transformation. But how can we make a difference in the entire system? This is where the Wuppertal Institute comes in. The promotional video "The Forces of Transformation" presents the Institute and its work.
