Current research fields
Alongside its strategy, the German Federal Association for Sustainability essentially pursues transformative research with and without state funding:
"soeco-forming" as a strategic approach
Nature strives to compensate for imbalances. We want to follow this concept and introduce for the first time the concept of "soeco-forming" for the necessary strategy, which is also the basis for our research projects.
In line with the term "terraforming", which is commonly used for the structural production of the habitability of inhospitable landscapes, "soeco-forming" describes the establishment of structural and mental prerequisites
- for social, economic and environmental life perspectives in a world of transformation
- through the participation of people, the consideration of cultural influences for human action and an balance-oriented human-nature interaction.
