Sustainability Science and the Humanities

In early 2019 a process was set in motion by UNESCO, the International Council for Philosophy & Human Sciences (CIPSH), the Humanities for the Environment global observatory network and the Nordic Network for Interdisciplinary Environmental Studies (NIES) to establish a framework enabling the launch of a global sustainability science coalition under the name of BRIDGES, which stands for Building Resilience In Defense of Global Environments and Societies. The nascent coalition seeks to integrate sciences (natural and social), humanistic fields, arts and technical disciplines, together with a range of societal partners from different sectors, to address the most pressing social, economic and environmental sustainability challenges of the coming decade. The ultimate goal of the emerging coalition is to open new transformative pathways to help achieve a flourishing and sustainable world.

The 3rd BRIDGES Establishment Workshop is going to be held in Sigtuna, Sweden on the 5th-7th, October, 2019. Please click on the following link to view the framework of the workshop: .
