Dear openmod-Initiative,

In the in the current winter semester, the Junior Research Group on Energy Sufficiency (https://energysufficiency.de/) organizes the lecture series "Enough. Perspectives on Energy Sufficiency". Next week, the 2nd part "Sufficiency in Scenarios and Modeling" will start with the following lecture (in German):

01/21/21 "How do we achieve 1.5°C? A global sufficiency scenario"
KAI KUHNHENN, Konzeptwerk New Economy 
The available emission reduction scenarios analyzed by the IPCC do not reflect the full range of real possibilities for societal transformation. For example, virtually all of them assume global economic growth by the end of the century. The growth fixation makes it increasingly difficult to achieve ambitious mitigation targets such as the 1.5°C limit. Kai Kuhnhenn presents a low-risk and socially just scenario for meeting the 1.5°C limit. The scenario includes technical solutions as well as social innovations, a critical examination of growth dependency the reduction of current consumption and production levels in the global north.
The lecture recurs to this recently published study: "A Societal Transformation Scenario for Staying Below 1.5°C“ https://www.boell.de/de/2020/12/09/societal-transformation-scenario-staying-below-15degc 

We would like to invite you to participate in the presentations as well as in the subsequent discussions.
