Benno Fladvad is a Geographer and since 2019 research associate at the Humanities Centre for Advanced Studies "Futures of Sustainability" at the University of Hamburg. The research group deals with the question of how modern societies change and which conflicts arise when different visions about sustainable futures collide in the present. In particular, he deals with the tension between democracy and sustainability, with questions of environmental justice, as well as with the coloniality of climate and sustainability policies, e.g. in the context of the production of blue and green hydrogen. From 2018 to 2019 he worked as a project manager at WWF-Germany on the topic of sustainable animal feed / soy, and from 2011 to 2017 as a research assistant at the Institute of Geography of the University of Kiel. In this function he wrote his dissertation on food sovereignty in Bolivia, for which he conducted in 2013 and 2015 extensive ethnographic field work.
