  • Kritik Dominanz westlicher Werte
  • Unsere gemeinsame Zukunft: Entstehung einer "Welt-Innenpolitik" seit 1989/90 Agenda 21: "Die Menschheit steht an einem entscheidenden Punkt ihrer Geschichte. Die Welt ist mit der Tatsache konfrontiert, dass Armut, Hunger, Krankheit und Analphabetismus um sich greifen und dass die Ökosysteme, von denen unser Wohlergehen abhängt, immer mehr in Mitleidenschaft gezogen werden. Die Kluft zwischen Arm und Reich ist nach wie vor unverändert. Der einzige Weg, der uns eine sicherere und blühendere Zukunft bescheren kann, besteht darin, Umwelt- und Entwicklungsfragen gleichermassen und miteinander anzugehen. (...) Keine Nation kann sich ihre Zukunft allein sichern; gemeinsam ist es aber möglich - in einer weltweiten Partnerschaft für eine nachhaltige Entwicklung." Die Schweiz hat sich in Rio, zusammen mit 181 anderen Staaten, auf eine Politik der NE verpflichtet. Johannesburg: World Summit on Sustainable Development WSSD - die grossen Hoffnungen von Rio sind ernüchterter Kleinarbeit gewichen. Die Zahl der Staaten, Organisationen, Gruppierungen hat aber deutlich zugenommen. Globalisierung ist weiter fortgeschritten. Bildung hat deutlich an Stellenwert gewonnen! In der Schweiz: Nationaler Kongress zur BNE in Bern, November 2002 Millennium Development Goals: 1.   Beseitigung der extremen Armut und des Hungers (bis 2015 halbieren!) 2. Grundschulbildung für alle 3.   Förderung der Gleichstellung der Geschlechter und Ermächtigung der Frau 4. Senkung der Kindersterblichkeit 5. Verbesserung der Gesundheit von Müttern 6. Bekämpfung von HIV/Aids, Malaria und anderen Krankheiten 7. Sicherung der ökologischen Nachhaltigkeit 8. Aufbau einer weltweiten Partnerschaft für Entwicklung Von der Umweltbildung zur Bildung für Nachhaltige Entwicklung: - EE/UB entstand in 70er Jahren im Norden, war v.a. auf Industrieländer und Schwellenländer zentriert - ESD/BNE entstand in 90er Jahren global, als Weiterentwicklung; Perspektive des Südens stärker!

  • How to explain Copenhagen to a comedian Memo to Eugene Mirman http://www.grist.org/article/2009-12-03-how-to-explain-copenhagen-to-a-comedian Photo illustration / iStock images Comedian Eugene Mirman is going to Copenhagen for Grist to cover the international climate talks. Eugene is a fairly well-informed guy (he at least scans Google News looking for reviews of his latest album ), but he’s the first to admit that he doesn’t live, eat, and smoke climate policy. At his request, the Grist staff threw together a basic cheat sheet on Copenhagen.  It’s overly simplistic. It avoids lots of important details. It’s probably offensive. In short, it’s just enough to help Eugene feign cluefulness when he’s accosting world leaders in Denmark.

    • The greatest single achievement of science 
    • in this most scientifically productive of centuries 
    • is the discovery that we are profoundly ignorant; 
    • we know very little about nature
    • and understand even less.

  • Global Sharing and Coping Starting Points HARMONIZATION The first and most central entry points have been around a G7 and SRU German Environmental experts initiative which was taken up by the UN- Environment Programme UNEP - HEM. GLOBAL CHANGE The other started with the GLOBAL CHANGE conference 1988 in Moskow. Germany and other countries had been invited to present „Challenges to Science and Politics“ in form of Conferences and Exhibitions. As I was invited to contribute I had to think anew on how such complex Issues could be communicated to the broader public, raising awareness and consciousness, and being correct and helpful for scientists, politicians, and industry at the same time. I go public now 1998 as after having this touring exhibition 8 years in Germany, but never been shown outside Germany, and being updated and in high demand, there is high danger of losing this piece and milestone. Politics look east and local when the exhibition was opened in May 1990. The result we have no public eye and information about the exhibition, its scope and results. As this is fatal in my view, I fee I have to change and address that. I could have also called this UIA guest page GLOBAL CHANGE or LOCAL AND GLOBAL CHANGE - as my work started about global environmental issues in 1988 with such wide and universal themes. Only because I was involved in two or more projects at that time, and have a certain background which was about preparing and documenting decisions and presenting results, I was able to make the bridge, combine what normally is not seen as one - or in one solution. As both project concepts are not only of wider interest and unique in their approach, specially in their time we are proposing here to follow each background independently and then join in again the flow of events.

  • Konrad Lorenz Institute for Evolution and Cognition Research Altenberg Workshops 1996/97 30. January 1997, Austria, Worldview Compositions and Cognitive Spaces - a necessary evolutionary step by Heiner Benking Source: Limits to Growth , Donella H. Meadows, Dennis L. Meadows, Jorgen Randers & William W. Behrens III , Potomac Associates, New York (1972) pls. see also The Club of Rome - The Predicament of Mankind , 1970 Subtitle of Fig 1: Although the perspectives of the world's people vary in space and time, every human concern falls somewhere on the space time graph. The majority of the world's people are concerned with matters that effect only family or friends over a short period of time. Others look far ahead in time or over a large area - a city or a nation. Only few people have a perspective that extends far into the future. * Later we can read in the book: that in contrast to the majorities focus in the quadrant in the lower left “box”, the book concerns itself with the upper right quadrant or “box”.

  • The Need for a Paradigm Shift
    • The step from Environmental Protection (Rio) to Sustainable Development (Johannesburg) implies a threefold shift of perspective, or paradigm shift:
    • From sectorial thinking to systems thinking
    • From deficit/problem to resource
    • From knowledge to competence

  • Whoever imagines mental deep permeable barriers which actually do not exist  and then thinks them away, has understood the world.  As space is entrapped in geometry's network of lines,  thought is caught in its (own) inherent laws.  Maps make the world comprehensible to us;  we are still waiting for the star-maps of the spirit.  In the same way than ambling through fields  we risk getting lost, the spirit negotiates its terrain. Friedrich Rückert, Wisdom of the Brahmins, a didactic poem, Charles T. Brooks in 1882 – above is unfortunately only a clumsy first translation by Robinson/Benking as we could only get hold of the original German version. this is a critical translation issue: WALLS & BOUNDARIES are „man-made“ – They have no equivalent in Nature. The term “Schranken” therefore can be translated as restraining bounds, or semiphors, barriers & temporary permeable or translucent / transparent material/strata/membranes/transition zones).

    • Increasing complexity & globalization of issues
    • Increasing interconnectedness (systems thinking)

    • Need for citizen participation in public institutions

Transcultural Dialog and Peace-Making Roundtable learning from experience during the last 40 years and new ideas   Stumbling blocks preventing true dialog, peace-making, and reconciliation: 1) we fight over words but do not check the meaning, 2) we do not question and compare the values attached to statements and attitudes, 3) we do not contextualize and embody concepts and meaning, do not check the sectors, regions, scales, proportions and consequences of alternative actions, 4) we do not give voice, empower, listen, cherish and cultivate difference or variety in dialog and decision making, 5) Disorientation and dumbing-down in Cyberculture and a mis-administered and misunderstood, intangible “ Globalisation / Glocalisation ”: Where we get overloaded by communication noise (sign/symbol melange) and media demagogy which means: no trust and fidelity in the statements and no ways and means to check the credibility and impact/relevance, and get lost between the scales, brackets, and sectors. 6) The above incompatibility and incomparability opens the door for over-claims and oversimplifications. Leaders use intangible jargon (plastic-words), neglect impacts and avoid instead of exploring differences and alternatives.                           e – DISCUSSION ON ACHIEVING SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT "Implementing the internationally agreed goals and commitments in regard to sustainable development" .

  • BE PREPARED TO BE SURPRISED Open-Forum Open-Space
  • Vegetarianism: Essential to Save the Planet? TWITTER   UN-COP 15 – CopenVegan, Dec. 13, 2009 This "Pitch“ of 10 Minutes to open the "Magic-Roundtable“ Open-Space section of the event, was designed to focus on what has been going on around Environmental Research and Management and Capacity Building during the last 40 years. The "Pitch“ is an invitation to go beyond the "winning“ argument of other lifestyles, diets, greater compassion towards all living things; reduction of suffering; and urges concerted action in all sectors. It argues that contributions towards caring for the soils, the water, healthy environment, energy efficiency and life-cycle thinking are a must in order to attain the objective of peaceful survival of living thing which is only possible by caring for the whole Creation on this planet. Mapping out our reach for and sharing of common grounds and insisting on the credibility of the whole proces in a workable and repeatable participative deliberation processis seen as an essential first step towards shared ( embodied ) covenants which give room for coexistence of oikos , ecumene , ecudomy and not just the juxtaposition of economy and ecology. Needed is a New Renaissance . Concretion and embodiment in times of Global Change.
