Die ,,Große Transformation“ erfordert neue Formen des Wissens und der Integration von Wissen. Die sich ergebenden Herausforderungen lassen sich mit dem Begriff der transformative literacy rahmen. Sie beschreibt die Fähigkeit, Informationen über gesellschaftliche Veränderungsprozesse zu verste hen und eigenes Handeln in diese Prozesse einzubringen. Sie hat eine technologische, ökonomische, institutionelle und kulturelle Dimension – wobei oft die technologische Sicht auf Veränderungs prozesse dominiert. Um die ,,Große Transformation“ zu meistern, muss dieses Ungleichgewicht beseitigt werden.

More about this publication?
  • GAIA is a peer-reviewed inter- and transdisciplinary journal for scientists and other interested parties concerned with the causes and analyses of environmental and sustainability problems and their solutions.

    Environmental problems cannot be solved by one academic discipline. The complex natures of these problems require cooperation across disciplinary boundaries. Since 1991, GAIA has offered a well-balanced and practice-oriented forum for transdisciplinary research. GAIA offers first-hand information on state of the art environmental research and on current solutions to environmental problems. Well-known editors, advisors, and authors work to ensure the high quality of the contributions found in GAIA and a unique transdisciplinary dialogue – in a comprehensible style.

    GAIA is an ISI-journal, listed in the Science Citation Index Expanded, Social Science Citation Index and in Current Contents/Social and Behavioral Sciences.

    All contributions undergo a double-blind peer review.
