Beyond crisis mode: building a resilient society 


We currently witness how a global health crisis can develop into an economic crisis of a global scale. The crisis that erupted with the spread of the Coronavirus has highlighted the inherent flaws of our financial and economic system. The responses to the last economic and financial crisis increased wealth and income inequalities, environmental degradation and financial instability. To avoid past mistakes, we are building a transnational network of scholars and activists and want to develop transformative responses to the current crisis.

"Next Generation Central Banking" | 3. - 5. February 2021

We are excited to announce our first Transformative Responses online conference. Register now for “Next Generation Central Banking: Climate Change, Inequality, Financial Instability” on 3. – 5. February 2021.

The Project

Transformative Responses to the Crisis is a project by Finanzwende in cooperation with the Heinrich-Böll-Foundation

The project aims to develop transformative responses to the current crisis in an international network of organizations and academics over several years, linking financial markets, ecology and inequality. Research and debates on the three crisis areas are to be bundled and focused in order to connect actors from these fields and prepare joint impulses and work on socio-ecological transformation.

The concrete outputs and proposals will be made available to both political decision-makers and the general public, and will be promoted together with other civil society organisations to foster political implementation.

The Challenge

The world faces an almost unprecedented crisis. The challenge is to not make the same mistakes as in 2008-9. We need to understand the various challenges that have brought us into this situation.

Our Goals

Our goal is to build a coalition of civil society and academic scholars that challenges the flawed responses to the crisis. We want to be a hub for organized civil society to bring about transformative ideas.

Our Network

A network of like-minded scholars and organizations is in the making. We want to create a group of activists and scholars that share their ideas on transformative responses to the crisis.

Our Funders

This project is run by Finanzwende in cooperation with Heinrich-Böll-Foundation. We receive funding from several institutions.
