Making hope possible
On scaling up engaged scholarship for socio-ecological transformation
3rd International Transdisciplinary Biennial on Environmental Justice
The International Transdisciplinary Biennial on Environmental Justice at Lassalle-Institute (Switzerland) offers an inter- and transdisciplinary platform for common activities (such as research exchange, communicative validation of results, networking, methodological innovations) between engaged scientists and reflective practitioners concerned by socio-ecological transformation.
The Biennial is aimed at scientific team leaders, senior and junior researchers, students, activists and decision-makers in industry, public administration and politics engaged in the topic and in transformation projects. As hosting organization operated by the worldwide Society of Jesus (religious order of the catholic church), Lassalle-Institute (Zug/Zürich) builds bridges between different spiritual traditions as well as between sciences, diverse fields of professional practice, industry and civil society since many years.
At the Pre-Conferene in 2023, co-organizers and Associate Partners invite institutions, decision-makers and scholars interested in further collaboration and partnership to prepare the Biennial as well as joint activities during the year such as open-access publications, transformation projects, mentorships or groups for intervision.
At the Biennial in 2024, the common work on environmental justice will focus in particular on the question of how hope can be made possible by action oriented transdisciplinary collaboration in view of aggravating crisis of climate change and biodiversity and of the need for decrease of global injustice.
The Call for Papers will be published here in Winter 2023.
