Knowledge Co-creation for Transformative Change

Knowledge co-production is increasingly recognised as a more legitimate vehicle to support sustainability transformations in contexts characterised by a high degree of complexity and uncertainty. This approach broadens the scientific peer group to include a rich diversity of perspectives and values from multiple actors from different sectors, as well as from different societal intersections, to support creative, inclusive, and meaningful collaborations. By embracing and integrating different ways of knowing and acting, our research seeks to enable new forms of practice and processes to support transitions towards sustainable futures.
