Webinar: Transformative Knowledge Networks – solutions-oriented research in practice

5th July 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Tuesday, 5 July 2016
16:00 – 17:00 CEST (14:00 – 15:00 UTC)

Research on global change and sustainability increasingly goes hand in hand with calls for profound change and social transformation – but what do we know about these processes in different, concrete contexts of application? What can social science-led research contribute to generating solutions and transformative change towards sustainability and social justice?

Join researchers from the Transformations to Sustainability programme for a webinar discussion on solutions-oriented research in practice. Find out more about how the networks intend to contribute to transformative change towards sustainability and social justice, ask questions and share ideas on solutions-oriented research involving co-design and co-production.

The webinar includes contributions from STEPS member Adrian Ely, involved in the Transformative Pathways to Sustainability project with the STEPS Global Consortium.
