Our Successful Future on YouTube

So gelingt unsere Zukunft

How will we as humanity survive the next hundred years? What do the upcoming challenges such as climate change, sustainable energy transition and world hunger mean for us individually? In order to develop a positive perspective for our future, we must first understand our position as human beings in the world and how we are embedded in our environment. In order to show the essential interrelations, evaluations of publicly accessible data are presented and discussed. In this way, the essential dependencies are presented in a clear and comprehensible way. The overall picture developed in this way finally points out a clear direction for our actions, so that a sustainable and happy life on our small planet Earth will be possible also in the future.
