Alexander Carius is founder and Managing Director of adelphi, the Berlin-based think tank. His research and work focuses on the future of democracy and governance in an increasingly amorphous and borderless world. For three decades, Carius has been dealing with sustainable resources, climate risks and the future of cities. For Carius, resource protection and climate policy are geopolitical and geoeconomic challenges and climate diplomacy is the key field of action for foreign policy in the 21st century. The designer and strategist translates scientific insights into practical options for politics, society and business, and advises and supports governments, international organisations and companies. His goal: to develop and implement transformation processes on the way to a climate-neutral future worth living in.
“For me, resource protection and climate neutrality are geopolitical and geoeconomic challenges, and climate diplomacy is the key field of action for foreign policy in the 21st century.”
