Habt ihr schon mal Cli-Fi geschrieben? Climate-Fiction is Germany? YES!

Grönland taut ab, Extremwetterereignisse werden zur neuen Normalität, Millionen von Umweltflüchtlingen suchen eine neue Heimat, ganze Kulturen versinken im Ozean … Alles ausgedacht? Leider nicht. Auch wenn es immer noch einige Zweifler gibt: Der Klimawandel ist real, und wir stecken mittendrin. Was machen wir mit dieser Erkenntnis – und was macht diese Erkenntnis mit uns? Einen spannenden Zugang zu dem Thema findet die Cli-Fi, für die namhafte Autoren wie Paolo Bacigalupi, Kim Stanley Robinson oder Margaret Atwood als Beispiele gelten. HASHTAG for Twitter #CliFi

Greenland taut, extreme weather events are the new normality, millions of environmental refugees are looking for a new home, all cultures is sinking in the ocean ... everything is designed? Unfortunately not. Even if there are still some doubters are: climate change is real and we are stuck in the middle of it all. What do we do with this knowledge - and what makes this knowledge with us?
