Dr. Friedrich Bohn

Friedrich Bohn studied geoecology in Bayreuth, wrote his diploma thesis at the Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry in Jena and received his PhD at the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research in Leipzig. His research combines the different research areas of remote sensing, climate change, hydrology and diversity of forest ecosystems.

In 2021, he co-initiated the "zukunftsbilder" project, which involves more than 100 scientists, journalists, artists and others. Together, they are developing scientifically sound descriptions of a sustainable future. From these, they derive measures that we need to implement today in order to make the specific imagination of the future a reality in the near future. The positive images of the future inspire change, help overcome fears and motivate action.

The Importance of Sustainable Living for a Future Society

In the face of the climate crisis, there is often a tendency to feel powerless. However, there are many good ideas for solving the crisis. Nevertheless, the transformation is not going fast enough. The TEDx-Talk will not show what we could do, but how we should do it. Because the power of the individual is greater than you think and can accelerate the transformation.
