Narratives and Images of Sustainability

What are the central narratives in the field of sustainable development research? Why are some political narratives successful and others not? These are two of the central research questions addressed in the project Narratives and Images of Sustainability. The project examines the central narratives in the field of sustainable development research and policy, including their social-psychological dimensions, and analyses their impacts along the communication chain. Researchers will then draw practical conclusions from these insights for the generation, development, and use of narratives. The potential of artistic and symbolic representations to support transformations towards sustainability will also be considered within this context.
