Über Lebenskunst

I just stumbled over the website of Über Lebenskunst, an initiative in Berlin, which is funded by the German Federal Cultural Foundation. The impact of climate change and the global environmental crisis are among the most urgent, long-term issues facing us today. For this reason, the Federal Cultural Foundation established the programme ÜBER LEBENSKUNST in 2009 which examines perspectives of economic and social restructuring that could lead to a sustainable way of life and investigates what kind of role culture can play in such a process. The Federal Cultural Foundation has allocated a total of 3.5 million euros to fund the project until 2012.

I think that there are a lot of interesting projects going on in 2010 and 2011 and I warmly suggest my friends in Berlin to have a closer look at it. Hopefully, I will find the time to participate or visit some of the events…
