Inspiration Forum 2020
While in this interregnum, we wish the Inspiration Forum to be a platform that not only raises more questions than it offers answers, but also one that helps all those involved to be active citizens and actors of inevitable change. A unifying theme of this year's forum is hope in the power of imagination, through which we, as societies and as individuals, can actively contribute to the new shape of our world. We ask how we can get a handle on the present challenges in a responsible manner so that we can make a shift towards a geopolitically, socially, and ecologically more just future. At the same time, we would like to establish an interdisciplinary and inclusive perspective that can allow us to point out that in the planetary era, seemingly unrelated events are, in fact, related and that we are intrinsically affected by processes that transcend civilisation and humankind.
Immerse yourself into a condensed form of thinking about the present and future state of the world on the following pages, each dedicated to one topic. In addition to a detailed programme, this year on the forum's website includes thoughts of our guests and reading lists.
