The organizing team of the 2023 Radboud Conference: The Earth System Governance Project and Radboud Centre for Sustainability Challenges are very pleased to announce co-hosting partners of this year’s Annual Conference. These co-hosts are long-standing partners of the ESG global research alliance, as well as local partners in the Netherlands. They are committed to jointly ensuring the success and impact of this year’s conference, as well as facilitating the semi-plenary to present cutting edge research on sustainability transformations.
Earth System Governance research seeks to explore political solutions and novel, more effective governance systems to cope with global environmental change. This year, the conference theme ‘Bridging Sciences and Societies for Sustainability Transformations’ aims especially to further increase and foster interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary work among the research network, community of scholarship, and society at large. The sixth steam’s emphasis on transdisciplinarity particularly aims to bridge the gap between academic research and decision-making and to ensure that research can be made more relevant at various levels.
We are especially pleased that the theme of ‘Bridging Sciences and Societies for Sustainability Transformations’ is a common ambition of our co-hosts:
The German Institute of Development and Sustainability: IDOS
The German Institute of Development and Sustainability – IDOS has become one of the world’s leading research institutes in development policy and global development. IDOS builds bridges between theory and practice through work based on the interplay between Research, Policy Advice and Training.
IDOS is privileged and excited to support the conference once again as a co-host. Indeed, we are looking forward to our cooperation with our colleagues and friends at Radboud University and the ESG Project!
The Radboud conference theme speaks right to IDOS’ philosophy and institutional legacy as a bridge builder between sustainability research and policy-making on the one hand, as well as the practice for sustainable development and the global common good on the other.
We are particularly pleased to be able to support the ESG Project’s efforts to increase participation and engagement of fellows from Africa, Latin America and Asia and welcome Radboud’s initiative to host distinct South-South-Dialogues in conjunction with the main conference.
The Institute for Environment and Sustainability (IES), National University of Singapore
The Institute for Environment and Sustainability (IES), housed at the National University of Singapore’s Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, aims to bridge the gap between sustainability goals and outcomes by generating fit-for-purpose policy analysis.
For IES, Co-hosting the 2023 Radboud Conference on Earth System Governance provides a unique opportunity to reach scholars and practitioners working in this space.
PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency
The Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency is a Dutch research institute that advises the Dutch government on environmental policy and regional planning issues. The research fields include sustainable development, energy and climate change, biodiversity, transport, land use, and air quality.
As the national scientific institute for strategic policy analysis, PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency is excited to learn from and exchange with the cutting-edge international research undertaken by the ESG community.
