INVITATION: Future Earth Townhall Meeting
Participatory workshop to map out key priorities in global change research
26 May 2015, Eurooppasali (Malminkatu 16, Helsinki), 8:30-13:00
Registration by 20 May 2015.
Achieving sustainability in a world subject to global change requires understanding the links among environmental and societal change. Challenges related to resilience, governance models, resource efficiency, technology, business, trade, equity, and poverty are interlinked: a change in one component will cascade to many others.
Creating solutions that will lead to sustainability requires establishing a new interaction and partnership culture between researchers and society. Solutions-oriented global change research requires joint framing and co-design of research between producers and end-users of scientific knowledge.
Mission of the Townhall Meeting
Future Earth Townhall Meeting invites scientists and stakeholders from civil society, governance, and business to discuss and map out the key priorities in global change research: what is essential to understand, what kind of information do we need and in which format, how we should study the phenomena, and what is the role of stakeholders in global change research?
Join the discussions and share your thoughts for sustainable future!
