2 rich days again on transformation and climate research. Very special elders from the US speaking and active young researchers struggling with the challenges after the Paris Climate outcomes.
I enjoy meeting old friends and good researchers and activists and take in this very special academic talk. Check the links !

The talk of our 2 days a lot about transformation and multi-level governance.
I show around the new book from Yehezkel Dror: Avant Garde Plolitician - Leaders for a New Epoche https://www.linkedin.com/in/yehezkel-dror-71209178 and the forthcomming book on Glocal Studies The Glocal and Global Studies, GLOCALIZATIONS 2015, Victor Roudometof (2015), Taylor & Francis 2015, doi:10.1080/14747731.2015.1016293, (see also: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glocalization#History_of_the_concept)
and realise they can only work in their slot or box. The positive thing: They are increasingly aware about it. But is this enough??
I share a little about my Cognitive Superstructure and about Supersigns and Superstructures. Maybe someone is interested: [link]
As the title sets forwards - the conference is about research for climate policy &governance, little about how to transformations going. Only the dinner speach by Jenniger MOrgan (Greenpeace) and the SEMI-PLENARY IV, Chair Imme Scholz , DIE go beyond this narrow focus. Imme is adressing the 2030 AGENDA and I had mentioned on the first day from the floor that we need Leverage Projects and Solutions.
