Radboud University will be hosting next year’s Earth System Governance conference on its campus in Nijmegen. From October 22 to 27, 2023, academics from around the world will be discussing the state-of-the-art inter- and transdisciplinary knowledge necessary for sustainability transformations.
The annual Earth System Governance (ESG) conference is the key activity of The Earth System Governance Project, which is a global, interdisciplinary research network in environmental change and governance. Ingrid Visseren-Hamakers, professor of Environmental Governance and Politics at Radboud University’s Nijmegen School of Management announced the upcoming event last week at this year’s ESG conference in Toronto: ‘Radboud University is ambitious to contribute to sustainability transformations, and hosting the conference fits perfectly into this mission. Next year’s conference will be part of the University’s celebrations of its 100-year anniversary. The conference is organized through the Radboud Centre for Sustainability Challenges’.
The central theme of Radboud University’s ESG conference will be ‘Bridging sciences and societies for sustainability transformations.’ With this, Radboud University wants to emphasize inter- and transdisciplinary research in the Earth System Governance Project and make connections between the environmental social sciences, humanities, natural sciences, and societal knowledge. Ingrid Visseren-Hamakers: “Such bridging is a vital prerequisite for enabling transformations towards sustainable and just societies, that are so urgently needed around the world”.
In the coming year, the program and practicalities of the conference will be further developed. Already known is that the Radboud University ESG conference will be specially designed to enable interactions among scholars and practitioners, more so than ESG conferences to date.
