This course deals with structural transformation for sustainability. We will elaborate on transformations and our personal visions and link our vision for a sustainable world with our own life. The aim is that everyone finds their own role within the transformation process dependent on personal strenghts, drive and interests and deveops a personal roadmap with specific strategies for the personal and societal vision. Next steps and strategies for the time after the Klimacamp will be set.

The goal of the course is to develop a personal roadmap towards the vision one creates within the course for the personal and worldly visions in terms of a transformation for sustainability. In order to do so, the first session of the course will deal with the general transformation process. We will anaylse why we need a structural societal change and look at specific concepts that already exist for such a transformation process, especially the concept of the WBGU. We will discuss and reflect on concepts and further develop our own ideas. In addition, we will link the topic of transformation with visions and define and debate the role of visions and inner transformation in the structural transformation process.

In the second session, we will develop our own personal vision for our individual life in terms of an inner transformation. A method in this session will be meditation techniques as well as a dream journey. In the end of the session, the personal roadmap will be started.

In the third session, we will elaborate on our visions and transformation strategies for a global 'great' transformation process towards sustainability. We will specifically look at problems, visions and strategies for different sectors of interests.

In the last session, we will link the individual and global transformation process. We will finalize the roadmap based on individual visions for transformation with questions such as: what do I want to create in this world? For whom can I make a difference through my being? And in which sense will the world be another place because I have been here? The course will finish by drawing on a vision with practical stategies ahead for the time after the course on how to proceed for the necessary change and on a shared vision for transformation.

Prerequisites for participants – The course will be for any level of knowledge. However, a basic understanding of the concept of sustainability and knowledge on sustainability problems would be useful as well as openness for methods such as meditation and personal reflection.
