Transdisciplinary Socio-Environment Research

Rapid global environmental change and social upheaval require deep societal transformation. Using transdisciplinary research in cooperation with actors from policy and practice, Freiburg's geography researchers are developing societal solutions with direct relevance for application, thus supporting civil society and public administration in proactively shaping transformation.
The complex manifestations and problem constellations of Global Change require fundamental rethinking of existing policies and planning approaches in order to facilitate social transformation and to avoid or mitigate negative effects. Freiburg's geographers engage with actors from policy, civil society and other scientific disciplines in order to develop effective and practical approaches that contribute to social transformation. Research projects investigate, for example, the impact of climate change on healthcare systems and co-creative urban planning approaches and their transformation potential.
