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


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?

On Tuesday, 5th July 2016, we held a webinar to present the Transformative Knowledge Networks funded under the Transformations to Sustainability programme, and to discuss co-designed, solutions-oriented research in practice.
