    This fourth lecture in the event series ‘Beyond Our Means – Boundaries of the Present’ focuses on the digital world, which seems to have reached its limits in several respects, and we want to look at three of these limits: Has digitalisation become a climate killer instead of a climate saver? How is increasing technologisation and automation of our spheres of life to be assessed and justified? And what effects does the simultaneity of our analogue and digital lives have on our psychosocial condition?

    The experts introduce their topics in short presentations and then exchange ideas in a digital World Café.

    This event is in German only. 

    Due to limited participant numbers, we would kindly request a binding and reliable registration to allow maximum usage of limited capacities.

    Registration is required. The registration link will be published closer to the event date.
