Risk and Sustainability (FSL) (Vorlesung)

Dozent/in: John-Oliver Engler

wöchentlich | Mittwoch | 10:15 - 11:45 | 06.04.2021 - 09.07.2021 | Online-Veranstaltung

Inhalt: The lecture gives an introduction to risk research and the relation of the concept of risk to the normative goal of sustainability. After an introduction to the basic definitions and terminology, students will obtain an overview over the quantitative methods of risk theory. The following main part of the course looks at different manifestations of risk that are relevant in the sustainability context, and that can be subsumed under the terms ‚catastrophic/existential risk‘ – one example being climate change – and ‚extreme events‘, which are low-probability events with potentially severe impact on humans and nature – one example being asteroid impacts. Further focus will be given to the psychology of risk and how it affects and hampers pro-environmental political and individual decision making. Morever, there will be a short introduction to the field of risk ethics.
