Volltext/Document

Global interdependence is greater than ever before. Therefore, Germany holds a great deal of potential to exert a transformative role in global sustainability policy. First of all, it has to answer fundamental questions: how can the international capabilities of all the ministries be mobilised and networked? Can collaboration within alliances of trailblazers (e.g. in sustainability policy) reinvigorate the multilateralism that is currently blocked in many areas? How can a culture of global cooperation be fostered successfully? Many reform initiatives already exist, but the effort to root them must be greatly increased.
