Collaboration – a path towards a more sustainable future

"We have enormous sustainability challenges ahead of us. In order to handle these challenges, we need collaboration." Meet Albert Norström, My Sellberg, and Henrik Österblom from Stockholm Resilience Centre, and Marie Löf at the Baltic Sea Centre, in a film about the study.

 

 

An understanding of how a challenge emerged; a range of perspectives, knowledge, and expertise; clearly defined, shared and meaningful goals; ongoing learning among actors, active engagement and frequent interactions. A scientific study led by researchers at the Baltic Sea Centre and Stockholm Resilience Centre and involving a large group of international researchers, states that these four principles are necessary for successful knowledge co-production for sustainability research.

"We have enormous sustainability challenges ahead of us. In order to handle these challenges, we need collaboration. We need to work long-term with many different stakeholders in order to reach these goals together," says Albert Norström, researcher at Stockholm Resilience Centre.
