The Nijmegen Agenda on Transformative Inter- and Transdisciplinarity

What is The Nijmegen Agenda?

The Nijmegen Agenda is a commitment to catalyzing transformative collaboration. It acknowledges the urgency of addressing pressing global issues such as climate change, biodiversity loss, and societal disparities. By transcending academic boundaries and engaging diverse stakeholders, it strives to bridge the gap between theory and practice, aiming for real-world impact. The Agenda has been drafted in collaboration based on findings from the 2023 Radboud Conference on Earth System Governance on barriers to inter- and transdisciplinarity and on potential avenues to transcend these barriers.

How can you contribute?

The Nijmegen Agenda Committee invites the Earth System Governance community to provide feedback on the draft Agenda through a dedicated consultation form. The perspectives, opinions, and inputs from ESG scholars are invaluable in shaping this transformative agenda. In a world grappling with multifaceted challenges, collaboration for transformative inter- and transdisciplinarity is key. The community-wide consultation phase precedes the finalisation of the Nijmegen Agenda, which will result in an article in the ESG Journal.
