An edited volume including a chapter by me with a communitarian take on citizen coproduction has just been published. The open access book “Perspektiven für morgen : Gedanken zur Zukunft von Politik, Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft” was a joint project of a student project course at University of Potsdam led by Linn Burchert and my organization Zoon Politikon.
Here’s the English blob for the whole book:
The volume “Perspektiven für morgen. Gedanken zur Zukunft von Politik, Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft” offers student perspectives on sustainable development. Practical questions of sustainability in society, politics and economy are approached in essay form. The first chapter – Zukunftsfähigkeit und Nachhaltigkeit – introduces the limitations and opportunities of forecasting as well as a discussion of the term “sustainability”. The chapter Gesellschaft deals with scopes of action towards sustainability on the individual and social level. The chapter Politik provides thoughts and recommendations for sustainable political systems, decisions and policies. The section Wirtschaft copes with the global distribution of resources as well as issues of labor market and fiscal policy. This volume is the product of a student project course at University of Potsdam in the winter term of 2011/12.
