Kommt es oder nicht? Zukunftsdesign - Futurium / NION

Im März 2020 kommentiert der Nachhaltigkeitsspezialist (sustainability tech expert) Kensuke Nishimura auf dem Forum Nion Berlin die Energieentwicklungsplanungen in Deutschland - zwischen Nuklearem und Nachhaltigkeit:

"Why is nuclear interesting?

One thing I found interesting was the theme “Harnessing Powerful Forces (Gewaltige Kräfte beherrschen)”. This area explains about the powerful force people produce with nuclear fission and fusion. Germany will phase out from the nuclear fission technology in 2022. It is clear that it will have no place there in the future. But Germany considers there are countries which will need this technology instead of investing in coal fired power plants. I could imagine that the planners of Futurium had tried to design this area in a fair and neutral manner as the visitors are from all over the world. Many of them are from the countries which promote nuclear fission, like Japan. Doraemon, a nationally popular ANIME/MANGA character, is introduced as an iconic symbol powered by a nuclear technology.

On the other hand, Germany is familiar with a nuclear fusion technology. Different from the nuclear fission, the nuclear fusion DOES dramatically reduce risks occurred with radioactive wastes. Greifswald, a small town in the former GDR, is now famous for a nuclear fusion technology research institute settled there. So Germany seems to have a will to establish this technology in the future. My personal perception is that the German Energiewende, creating a decarbonized, decentralized and digitized society, will be broadly completed by 2050 so that there will be no room even for the nuclear fusion technology. But let’s see!"

"The ideas introduced at Futurium seem unreal. But they ARE real. It is happening now!"

MISSION STATEMENT NION:

"We are NION; a group of leading creative movers; a place where Japan & Berlin come together. From the Berlin music, art, tech to urban development scene, we serve as an international platform to support and enrich contemporary culture and creativity in Berlin.

'We are all one' – This is our mission.
Building a bridge between Berlin and Japan will enable each of us to exchange knowledge and ideas to design new, harmonious ways of living. We will create a safe and open environment where we can freely share each other’s values and what matters to our lives. This includes every being on this planet, so that we can all come together as one."

Stellenausschreibung Rachel Carson Center München

The Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society (RCC) and the Munich Science Communication Lab (MSCL) are looking for a Doctoral Candidate in Environmental Humanities (TVL E13, 65%) to join its team. The position will start on 1 April 2023 or shortly thereafter. The position runs initially through 31 March 2026, which includes a six-month probation period. The MSCL is a non-profit joint initiative of scientists and science communicators that aims at bringing together research about and the practice of science communication. Its current research focus is on Planetary Health. The RCC is the largest Center for Advanced Study in the environmental humanities worldwide and hosts numerous international scholars working on environmental topics. Its working language is English.

The RCC invites applications for a doctoral candidate who will explore and critically analyze visual representations of planetary health (PH) within and across the domains of art, science, popular culture, and activism. PH is a concept that has emerged in the last decade; it forges interdisciplinary collaborations that draw attention to how anthropogenic environmental change at a global scale has impacted the health of humans and life on Earth. The doctoral candidate is expected to focus their research and writing on the following questions: How have visualizations, maps, iconic photographs, and films shaped scientific and public understandings about the drivers and solutions to planetary health issues?  How do such representations make visible or erase complex and contested environmental and social problems related to planetary health operating at multiple temporal and spatial scales? 

Qualifications
Candidates for this position:

  • must have an MA in anthropology, environmental history, environmental studies, geography, literary studies, philosophy, science communication, science and technology studies, or visual culture.
  • be interested in pursuing these and related questions as part of a new initiative on Communicating Planetary Health in partnership with the Munich Science Communication Lab. 
  • must be fluent in English, with exceptionally strong English writing skills.

Candidates ideally have some German language skills.

The RCC offers an attractive compensation package, based on the tariff contracts for public service, 65% of level E13, commensurate with experience, and 30 days paid vacation. Working hours are flexible, and the RCC offers a family-friendly working environment. The RCC can also assist, if necessary, with work permits and visas. As the candidate will be a state employee, they are required to have German health insurance and make contributions to the German tax and social welfare system. We especially seek applications from qualified individuals with disabilities and welcome applications from women.

To apply, please send your cover letter, CV (max. 4 pages), an academic writing sample (max. 2 pages), and the contact information of two references in a single PDF document to jobs@rcc.lmu.de by December 1, 2022.


Geschichte des Nuklearen - Fundstück: NS Otto Hahn

"Das frachtfahrende Nuklearschiff Otto Hahn wurde als drittes ziviles Schiff nach dem sowjetischen Eisbrecher Lenin und der US-amerikanischen Savannah von einem Kernreaktor angetrieben. Das Schiff wurde nach dem Kernchemiker und Nobelpreisträger Otto Hahn benannt, der beim Stapellauf 1964 persönlich anwesend war."

"Die letzte Reise des Schiffes nach Durban ist in dem Roman Der Abschied von Lothar-Günther Buchheim beschrieben."

Frankreich: Streik an Atomkraftwerken

"Workers in sectors such as transport, energy, education, waste collection, and agriculture plan to join French unions' call for an "inter-professional" strike this Tuesday.

As a result, not only will refinery workers and those at France's largest nuclear power plant Gravelines be on strike on Tuesday, but so will workers in other professions nationwide." (PNA)
