Exposition of this is in the following talk notes

In the context of differential cohomology in a cohesive topos, every characteristic map $\mathbf{c}$ induces – via ∞-Chern-Weil theory – the Lagrangian $CS_{\mathbf{c}}$ of an ∞-Chern-Simons theory. There is canonically a differentially twisted looking $WZW_{\mathbf{c}}$ of $CS_{\mathbf{c}}$. This generalizes the Lagrangian for the sigma-model called the Wess-Zumino-Witten model from Lie group target spaces to general smooth ∞-group target spaces.
