Introducing our speaker Alex Metternich

Referencing a variety of fields, Alex Metternich takes a Systems Thinking approach to sustainability, focusing primarily on the relationships between “human” and “natural” systems. This is also the topic of his talk “Motivating for Sustainability – a systemic approach”.

The basic mechanics of complex systems dynamics can be very empowering, when we understand ourselves as integral parts of the complex system Earth.

Alex Metternich is a Director of Studies at the civic academy Europäische Akademie Otzenhausen in Saarland, Germany, where he organizes and runs international seminars and workshops on the various topic fields of sustainability.
