Challenges the Methods for Transdisciplinary Suatainability Resarch

Effective sustainability research must be geared to the reality of people's lives. Whether biodiversity, climate change or the Millennium Development Goals: the expert knowledge of various disciplines must be taken into account, as must the needs and everyday knowledge of citizens and consumers.

In her article "Science for the Future: Challenges and Methods for Transdisciplinary Sustainability Research" for the "African Journal of Science, Technology, Innovation and Development (AJSTID)", Dr. Susanne Schön and her co-authors analyze how knowledge integration in sustainability research can succeed.
