International Conference 2024 „Planetary Justice and Societal Responsibility in International Sustainability Sciences and
Scientific Cooperation“

March 13-14, 2024 | Virtual

Sustainable solutions to global challenges require international cooperation between scientific and civil society actors from very different contexts. Against the background of global responsibility with regard to sustainability, this concerns in particular the cooperation between actors from the Global North and South. Due to different cultural or socio-economic circumstances and a larger set of ethical considerations relevant in an international sustainability context, it is necessary to jointly reflect on the question of
research in societal responsibility with international partners.

Join us for this conference, where experts and researchers engaging in international sustainability research from the Global South and the Global North will come together, jointly examine the extent to which Sustainability Sciences do justice to different aspects of societal responsibility, to what extent understandings and conditions differ in the international context, and what role reflection criteria such as those developed in the LeNa Shape project can play in international sustainability science and scientific cooperation. Our collective aim is to foster a collaborative reflection on Societally Responsible Research, particularly in the context of global North-South collaborations.
