Reflecting the Present – Shaping the Future

Technological transition, social innovation, and socio-economic globalisation herald profound changes in our lives and realities. New individual and collective practices emerge, influencing our capacities to (re)act. Many aspects of life are undergoing rapid redesign: climate change is threatening our planet; political power relations are shifting; media are being digitalised and daily life is becoming increasingly economised. How do Arab and German societies cope with these changing realities? What are the driving forces and effects of transformation? And how do cultural and symbolic meanings emerge as societies change?
