Sustainability Science and its Challenges


Time: October 19th (Fri.), 2012 15:30-17:00
Place: 6th Floor Lounge, Environment Bldg.

Sustainability science faces the critical challenge of establishing itself as an academic field. To address complex sustainability issues requires development and use of interdisciplinary approaches, including natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities. Active collaboration with various stakeholders in society, involving academia, industry, government, and civil society is also critically important for transdisciplinarity. This leads to the overarching question of how to deal with the issue of institutionalization. Professor Yarime will talk about his experience of studying sustainability science and outline the numerous challenges the field is encountering in creating innovation for global sustainability.
