Abstract English

The conference report informs about the convention “Sustainability at Crisis? Global Governance for a futurable Global society”, which was held in July 2009 at Karlsruhe/Germany. Starting from the survey about “Sustainable Germany in a globalised world”, published in 2008, different speakers from research institutes (Wuppertal Institut für Klima, Umwelt, Energie) as well as from companies (e.g. Shell Germany) and policy consulting agencies (IFOK) clearly announced their perspectives. Beyond presenting these main theses, the following article reflects the term of “sustainability” as label, which seems, due to its conceptual flexibility, to be dedicated for the projection of various themes, relevance and attitudes.
