Research priorities for sustainability science

DKN position paper published

DKN Positionspapier

With this position paper the DKN highlights pertinent research gaps and suggests forthcoming fields of research. It combines insights from global environmental change research and the environmental social sciences and humanities. This programmatic framework will form the basis of the future work program of the committee itself. Furthermore, it is hoped that it will motivate other scientists to engage across disciplinary boundaries with the manifold epistemological, theoretical, and methodological challenges of sustainability science.

This contribution addresses agents in science, science management, and science funding in a national and an international context. The paper has been developed over the past two years. It reflects discussions within the German Committee Future Earth in times of the COVID-19 pandemic and debates on the contents of the paper during the course of the German Sustainability Science Summit 2021.
