About Christian Berg
Christian Berg was fortunate to have worked across sustainability topics in industry and academia, for more than 20 years. He have led corporate teams and consultancies in sustainability research and design, and was in charge of the Sustainable Economic Activity and Growth taskforce for German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Christian’s academic background is in physics, theology and philosophy, which he incorporate into his work now as a Professor in sustainability topics at multiple universities in Germany. Each experience has contributed to how he conceive of sustainability and the path forward for modern society.
Christian have recently published a book about sustainability transitions: Sustainable Action: Overcoming the Barriers. The book, published by Routledge, takes a transdisciplinary, systems-led approach to understanding the barriers we face in moving towards a sustainable future; barriers to physical reality, the human condition and social reality, and within economy, politics, law and technology. For each of these barriers the book offers solutions as ‘action principles’; principles that provide actionable solutions for every level from individuals to corporations to governments and supra-national organizations. This is, to his knowledge, the first integrated, comprehensive account of sustainability barriers across borders and disciplines.
