Workshop Knowledge, Learning and Societal Change (KLSC/IHDP) - the Swiss Contribution

25 February 2011 , 9:15 - 16:30 in Bern


Bärenplatz 2
Bern [1]

The KLSC project aims to better understand and explain the interplay between actions, knowledge and learning so that steps can be taken to enable adaptation to changing conditions and help societies move in more sustainable directions. This goal can only be reached by involving a broadly based community in the project with people from the sciences, humanities, and social practice, including participation in knowledge production by those living in key affected areas.
