Discourse evening with experts and audience

On July 3, at 6:30 p.m., there will be a discussion on this
topic at ChangeHub, Hardenbergstr. 32, 10623 Berlin. After a short introduction
to the common good economy by Dr. Cornelia Kühn, Dr. Boniface Mabanza and
Marjam Mayer will talk about chances and ways to a different economy and the
necessity of a different handling of resources. After the panel discussion, the
audience is cordially invited to join in the discussion. Ulrich Wünsch will
moderate.    


The economic paradigm of progress as "ever higher, ever further, and above all more" that defines our current prevailing school of thought on economics is no more than a proposition that just many believe in. It has led the planet and its inhabitants into a dead end. But there are alternatives. It is possible to think and act differently about economics and life.

So what do these alternatives look like? What do they look like with regard to the relationship between Europe and Africa? How can something good come out of less? What are our demands as human beings, as consumers, as co-inhabitants and beneficiaries?    

The Background:

Living in the Anthropocene - What do we (in the Global North) know about the effects of our global climate catastrophe in sub-Saharan Africa? What do we want to know? And, what insight do impersonal reports and abstract statistics about climate change offer? What really matters? What is the narrative of the place, the group, the individual? Are we as humans, then, "nature," and if so, what is happening to all of us?  

This themed evening is part of the side program "Climate Images - What We Anticipate and (Can) Know" to the online exhibition #ClimateImages, an immersive 3-D exhibition of 38 artists* from sub-Saharan Africa with over 70 artworks. The online exhibition will be open 24 hours a day from June 1, 2023 to August 31, 2023. Entrance is via a website at which the detailed catalog can also be downloaded for free as a pdf.

Open date - you can leave at any time after 7.30 p.m. - breaks and discussion with the audience, end half open (until 10 p.m. maximum)
