ISSC global research funding programme Transformations to Sustainability and Call for Seed Funding

We are delighted to share with you the official International Social Science Council (ISSC) announcement of the Transformations to Sustainability Programme and its first preparatory Call for Seed Funding.

The Transformations to Sustainability Programme aims to build scientific understanding of transformative social change in the face of global change and sustainability. More specifically, the programme seeks to:

– Increase the social science contributions necessary to craft more effective, durable and equitable solutions to the problems of global change and sustainability

– Increase the use of such knowledge by policy makers, practitioners, the private sector, citizens and activists

This initiative is intended as a major contribution to the work of Future Earth, a global research platform that provides knowledge and support to accelerate transformations to a sustainable world. Future Earth is co-sponsored by the members of the International Science and Technology Alliance for Global Sustainability.
