CECHR is organising a workshop to take place on Thursday 24th April called ‘Social Dimensions of Environmental Change’ which has the aim of facilitating research collaborations across the University under the broad theme of ‘environmental and social sustainability’.
Responding to global environmental change requires research and input from the social sciences in addition to the natural sciences, ranging from education, to social work, politics, anthropology, economics, geography, law and many more. Social issues relating to environmental change are diverse, and include, for example, issues relating to policy, politics and participation, legislation and regulation, reforming institutions, socio-economic structures, social justice and inequality, personal and societal values, beliefs and worldviews. The University of Dundee, and especially with its new remit for transformation, is well placed to provide research expertise to inform these issues and to generate significant research impact. However, much of this expertise is located widely across the University. This event therefore aims to provide opportunities for those with diverse expertise in understanding human social systems to network and explore collaboration in relation to environmental and social sustainability. The facilitated workshop will also include identification of potential joint research projects. The workshop will primarily involve participation and facilitated discussion.
