KlimaLectures x KlimaDiskurse: An die Wurzeln. Warum wird nicht entschieden, was nötig wäre?


To the roots. Why is there no decision on what is needed? 

"We need a new radicalism in political action" - this is one of the central messages of Bernd Ulrich, deputy editor-in-chief of the weekly newspaper Die ZEIT and co-author of "Noch haben wir die Wahl" (together with Luisa Neubauer, Fridays for Future). But why are decisions not being made on what would be necessary to solve the significant global challenges of our time, such as the climate crisis or the extinction

of species? And how can we achieve the required transformation of all areas of our lives and economies? 

Representatives of Die Junge Akademie and the Bavarian Climate Research Network (bayklif) will discuss these and other theses with Bernd Ulrich at a joint event.

diejungeakademie@Deutsches Hygiene-Museum Dresden


The social brain

How we understand what others think and feel

Philipp Kanske, Speaker of Die Junge Akademie and psychologist and neuroscientist at the Technical University of Dresden, visits the Deutsches Hygiene Museum Dresden as part of the event series diejungeakademie@.

How do we understand what other people think? How do we manage to empathise with others? Our ability to move in social communities depends on having access to these inner, unobservable states of others. The evening will highlight how social neuroscience explores our brain's ability to empathise and adopt perspective. Does the brain reflect what is going on in others? Or does it build abstract theories? People also differ greatly in how well they can think and feel and how problems contribute to the development of mental disorders. During the evening, we will briefly try out practical ways of practising these skills.
