Main Article Content
This essay presents a concept of narratives as powerful means for people to associate themselves with anthropogenic global change. The Ssarting point of our reflection is that people’s awareness is related to their story-telling practices to communicate insights and to induce or inspire behaviour. By analysing traditional and modern settings of "Earth-centric" narratives and their respective societal context, one can sketch the necessary features of society-earth-centric narratives. These features seem suitable to raise public awareness, in particular of urban people, of the interaction of human activities and the Earth system, and of anthropogenic global change.
