How did we assess today‘s global challenges 30 years ago? What is still relevant and new?, what is different? With Dr. Manfred Lange and Heiner Benking, we celebrate a very special anni- versary: on May 30, 1990 the exhibition “GLOBAL CHANGE – Challenges for Science and Politics – People and Global En- vironmental Change” was opened at the Federal Chancellery in Bonn, Germany.

Joy Lohmann (makers4humanity, Hanover) as host and Joerg Altekruse (Zeitfilm, Hamburg) as moderator invite you to this online and live event at the for-futures-summit (

Dr. Manfred Lange, then scientific director of the Global Change Secretariat of the Federal Government (Federal Ministry for Research and Technology), and the former exhibition partner and curator Heiner Benking recall the highlights of the exhibi- tion in short keynotes.

In a combination of a live event in Hanover and a zoom con- ference with break out rooms, specially invited guests and the audience will participate. What were the first steps in global change research and communication in Germany? What was the idea behind the traveling exhibition, which was updated several times.

The event will be recorded and published.
