  • Integrated methods for understanding and promoting regional resilience and transformation
  • Governance for 21st century challenges – how can we enhance well-being within planetary boundaries?

The conference will bring together policy makers, academics and implementers in a dynamic and collaborative exchange of ideas. Its innovative format will include; parallel paper sessions, plenaries, workshops, and lounge time spread over three days 11-14 November. To be a part of this conference you can submit an abstract for any one (or more) of the following opportunities.

Parallel sessions of contributed papers will be held. Each session will group papers by theme and topic, presentations will be 10-15min and questions will follow.

Each working group will be scheduled for 90 minutes.
