Leuphana Conference Week from March 1st to 3rd 2023

How can the political community regain its power to act in times of escalating crises? In the field of tension between power and powerlessness, the XVI. Leuphana Conference Week is interested in which actors are needed for a sustainable and just society. With a little distance, what can be learned from the pandemic wounds for future crises? How do the debates of the turning point change our possibilities to think about the future? What ideas and initiatives are breaking out of the state of emergency and already designing an open society that has a consistent earth policy in mind?
