Behavioural responses to turbulent times:
How social innovation to steer sustainable governance of nature and promote carbon neutrality
Needs innovative session at the 2020 Virtual Forum on Earth System Governance, September 16th, 2020.
The Covid-19 outbreak interconnects a global economic, climate, and health crisis and calls for immediate and adequate societal responses both strategic by nature and at a local level. New European Initiative – the Green Deal launched in December 2019 – brings in essential arguments to transform the present societal course of action towards a long-term sustainability strategy of promoting carbon neutral policies and putting the ecological economics concepts in real-life situations, and this remit requires substantial behavioural changes at both individual and societal levels.
Social innovation opens new prospects to address the behavioural change mechanisms through the lens of transdisciplinary research to induce the transition to long-term sustainability.
