An increasing number of voices highlight the need for science itself to transform and to engage in the co-production of knowledge and action, in order to enable the fundamental transformations needed to advance towards sustainable futures. But how can global sustainability-oriented research networks engage in co-production of knowledge and action? A new article in Current Opinion in Environmental Sustainability introduces a strategic tool called the ‘network compass’ which highlights four generic, interrelated fields of action through which networks can strive to foster co-production. The Global Land Programme is one of the 11 networks involved in the study.
The GLP working group on co-production held its first webinar, a kick-off session for anyone interested in co-production in the field of land-system science, in June. View a recording of the full webinar, download copies of the presentations, and more.
