The comic – called “The Great Transformation – Climate: can we beat the heat ?” – is based on the German Advisory Council on Global Change (WBGU)’s 2011 report World in Transition – A Social Contract for Sustainability. In nine episodes, WBGU members take on the role of comic heroes to explain the Great Transformation towards a climate-friendly, sustainable society. IIASA Deputy Director General Nebojsa Nakicenovic is a member of the WBGU and contributed to the report on which the comic is based.
The German version of the comic was released in March, 2013.
A printed copy may be ordered for free from the WBGU Web site. The PDF of the comic will be posted online during COP 20 of the UNFCC in December 2014.
