Narratives of climate protection exchange with visitors from SEA

Six “Green Cham­pi­ons of South­east Asia”, award­ed by DAAD Viet­nam for their projects on recy­cling and water man­age­ment, vis­it­ed us on Octo­ber 11, 2018. Togeth­er with Prof. Dr. Ilan Chabay, Head of Strate­gic Research Ini­tia­tives and –pro­grammes at IASS, we shared thoughts and ideas on con­ser­va­tion and nar­ra­tives of cli­mate protection.

It was espe­cial­ly inter­est­ing to dis­cuss cli­mate change frames and our oppor­tu­ni­ty-ori­ent­ed approach with the vis­i­tors that came from Cam­bo­dia and our project part­ner coun­try Viet­nam. We agreed on the need for com­pelling and rel­e­vant nar­ra­tives that take into account the par­tic­u­lar inter­ests of the tar­get group. The vis­it had been orga­nized by the Goethe-Insti­tut on behalf of the Fed­er­al For­eign Office.
