Open Access Session: The Future of Transdisciplinary Sustainability Science

Session sponsored by:

In light of the fact that the world will fall short of meeting the Sustainable Development Goals and targets set for 2030, we use this session to take a look at what we can do differently in sustainability science. This session focuses on work of early career researchers who work in transdisciplinary sustainability science. It’s an opportunity to share what works and what doesn’t in a number of different societal and geographical contexts. Building from the ISC’s vision of Science Missions for Sustainability, the session also aims to explore a re-imagining of sustainability science from funding, collaboration and career progression perspectives.

The session is co-organized with the Early Career Researcher Network of Networks (ECR NoN) of Future Earth.
