Prof. Dr. Lena Partzsch and Dr. des. Albert Denk (Transens) participated in this conference organized by the Environmental Policy/Global Change Working Group of the German Political Science Association (DVPW) in cooperation with the Junior Professorship of Global Environmental Governance, Westfälische-Wilhelms Universität Münster. The conference was dedicated to the interactions between different (disruptive as well as continuous) forms of societal change and changes in environmental and climate politics, and asked about their transformation potential. Besides the scientific reflection of these interactions, the conference also aimed at exploring practical implications in exchange with actors from political practice, e.g. BUNDjugend, Ende Gelände, Fridays for Future and Letzte Generation. Prof. Partzsch presented a paper entitled "Sustainable supply chains: Accountability narratives in NGO campaigns". Dr. des. Denk’s paper presentation was entitled " Exklusive Öffentlichkeit – Eine Analyse der Bürgerbeteiligung in der Endlagerstandortsuche” (Exclusive public sphere - An analysis of citizen participation in the search for a final repository site).
