Klimaschutz - soz. Gerechtigkeit

The author Karl-Martin Hentschel says: "People with low incomes are significantly more affected by climate change. They are also more affected by price increases of food, (...) electricity and heating and by other kinds of purchases that are influenced by climate policy. (...) Therefore, the Paris Agreement will only be successfully implemented if social justice is considered from the beginning.

Digi and public

With blogs, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and co., citizens can inform themselves directly about other citizens. This affects the power of interpretation of the traditional media. Against this backdrop, word creations like "fake news" on the one hand mark a state of affairs. On the other hand, they are themselves instruments in the struggle for interpretive sovereignty.

Big Data

Data in large quantities are considered the "oil" of the digital age. They are a central economic factor and growth engine. However, the masses of data also call for an "update" of Democracy: Who has access to data? How can this be democratically controlled and abuse of power through data prevented?

ABOUT US

The weltgewandt (“open to the world”). Institute for Intercultural Political Education invites you to discover the world outside your door, next door and far away and to grow from it. weltgewandt offers learning. Not in the sense of education, but as an encouragement to think for oneself. Not as frontal teaching as often in school, but with creative methods. Information is nevertheless not neglected. The preferred topics are economy/social issues, digitalisation, culture of remembrance, integration. The focus is on diversity of perspectives and debate, empowerment, contact and encounter. The services offered by weltgewandt are aimed at people from all social and cultural backgrounds. We want to encourage people to discover their creative powers, to experience self-efficacy and to stand up for democracy, justice, freedom, tolerance and human rights. The projects are funded by the European Union, a foundation, donations from citizens and the state of Berlin.
