Future Earth International Workshop “Transformation to sustainability: Moving from knowledge to action”

The realization that human society and its relationship with the natural environment will have to be transformed in many fundamental ways to become sustainable is gradually gaining wide acceptance and a body of research around the theme of societal transformation is emerging.

In this workshop, we will be examining how insights from research on transition can be linked to real-world action. In particular, the idea of forming knowledge-action networks will be explored. The workshop starts with presentations by Karen O’ Brien (University of Oslo, Future Earth Science Committee member), Steven McGreevy (Research Institute for Humanity and Nature), and Saijo Tatsuyoshi (Hitotsubashi University), to continue with a structured discussion.
