    This second lecture in the event series ‘Beyond Our Means – Boundaries of the Present’ focuses on how humans’ unsustainable use of natural resources affects other beings and contributes to the loss of their livelihoods. What elevates humans above animals? Do animals need individual rights? And who can then be the “advocate” to represent their interests in the “parliament of our planet”?

    Following introductory impulse presentations, you can contribute your ideas and opinions on topics of your choice in small discussion groups. These will form the basis for the concluding expert discussion.

    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.


    This event series consists of five interactive lectures and is funded by the Deutsche Bundesstiftung Umwelt (DBU).
