In a discussion between the Economic Network for Climate Justice (with Carina Zell-Ziegler, among others) and members of the Bundestag (with Harald Ebner, Chairman of the Environment Committee; also Dr Franziska Kersten, Tessa Ganserer and Jürgen Kretz), the question of the political enforceability of sufficiency was discussed in particular.

In the discussion, church and civil society involvement was emphasised as an important means of changing opinions in relation to sufficiency policy measures. The members of the Bundestag were sceptical about the public response to resource-saving measures, particularly in relation to political discussions.

Establishing the contribution of sufficiency to quality of life as a long-term trend in social consciousness was ultimately identified as the most helpful means of transforming scepticism.
