The Autumn School, organised by Future Earth, will allow the participants to share and reflect on the various ways science communities in Europe frame sustainability science and transform their practices to better address sustainability challenges and make a greater contribution to societal transformations. This should enable participants to integrate new concepts and practices into their future research portfolios.

Future Earth’s Autumn School offers a programme of keynotes and small group activities to encourage discussion, collective reflection, interdisciplinary dialogue and collaboration among all participants: speakers, organizers and early career researchers.

Main topics:

  • How can historical perspectives contribute to understanding the present and exploring possible futures?
  • How can positive narratives or utopia enable actions?
  • How can integrated research on biophysical and social conditions help identify leverage points towards a more sustainable future?
  • What role does, should, could, and can research play in opening up the space for more pluralistic and radical visions for sustainability?
  • How to steer and engage in transdisciplinary projects?

Accommodation, meals and teaching costs are fully covered by the organizers. Upon request, travel costs can be covered for participants working in European middle income countries (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Republic of Moldova, Romania, Serbia, Ukraine).

Application deadline: 31 May 2023.
Date of Event: 16 – 20 October 2023.
Location: Aussois, Savoie, France.
