Am I the only one feeling that the must be better ways to share research insights than just sitting down passively, and listening to a long list of key note speakers? Just what I thought.
This blog includes an interview series with probably the most prominent scholars in the field of earth system science and governance. They will all elaborate different aspects of adaptiveness and innovation in an era of global environmental change. But the best part is: we invite all readers – i.e. conference participants – to add their own questions, comments and responses. We will use these comments as we round up the discussions live at the 20009 Amsterdam conference and the semi-plenary “Adaptiveness and Innovation in Earth System Governance”.
We will kick-start this process on Monday September 7th. The first topic is: “What is “Adaptiveness” – Really?” Listen to interviews with Frank Biermann (IVM, Netherlands), Louis Lebel (USER, Thailand) and Melissa Leach (STEPS, United Kingdom) as they explore this important concept. We want your comments, questions and responses. Read the rules of engagement here.
See you in Amsterdam, and enjoy the blog
