The comic – called The Great Transformation – Will we get our act together on climate change? – is based on the WBGU's report World in Transition – A Social Contract for Sustainability. In nine episodes, WBGU members take on the role of comic heroes to explain the Great Transformation towards a climate-friendly, sustainable society.
The book is part of a communication project funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) which aims to evaluate alternative knowledge-transfer approaches on complex future issues. The WBGU had previously recorded this report in English as a video-based course for use by universities.
The book was edited by Council member Reinhold Leinfelder, Alexandra Hamann and Claudia Zea-Schmidt and is published by Jacoby & Stuart. An English version is planned.
Pictorial material on the comic for publication is available free of charge; pleased click here to download.
