tweet #climateCulture

Determing the  goals and expectations of the Internationale Sommeruniversität, we started a conversation about the question “What is your idea of #ClimateCulture?”

Based on a wide concept of culture, including “the shared patterns of behaviors and interactions, cognitive constructs, and affective understanding”, the discussion was focussed on

  • why and how to combine culture and climate.

Here are only some of all the inspiring anwers:

#ClimateCulture is a useful concept to analyze climate change referring to  social, political and (inter) cultural issues;

#ClimateCulture opens a transdiscipinary discourse, including everyday experience and building a  socially robust knowledge in face of fragile futures.

The term #ClimateCulture refers to the german “Klimakultur”, coined by Harald Welzer (KWI, Kulturwissenschaftliches Institut Essen).
At the Int. Sommeruniversität 2013 #SUI13, we also had a discussion on that concept:

And the conversation goes on: you are welcome to share your idea of #ClimateCulture on twitter.
