InContext Final Conference & Informed Cities Forum 2013

How to create space for change? Rediscovering the power of community

6-7 June 2013, Berlin (Germany)

Our ambition is for InContext results to inspire change in communities around Europe. With a number of events scheduled in 2012 and early 2013 we already exchanged powerful ideas and lessons learned from transition processes in communities throughout Europe. In June 2013 the final conference of InContext, together with the Informed Cities Forum 2013 will bring a creative platform to do so again.

D.Bromley – Economic_talk

“Complexity is not the same as chaos”, said Elinor Ostrom in Stockholm after being awarded
Nobel prize in 2009. Questioning simple theoretical models to prescribe universal solutions
by developing a common,

classificatory framework

to facilitate efforts toward a better
understanding of complex social-ecological systems has placed complexity in a dominant
position of Lin’s research over the last decade. What is the way forward? How do we address
complexity in a global arena? How does uncertainty of information, future policy options and
fragility of social and ecological systems affect prospects of Earth system governance? We
are pleased to address the topic of complexity to honor Lin’s exceptional personality on the
date of her planned second visit of Slovakia. Speakers are: (1) Daniel W. Bromley,
University of Wisconsin-Madison and Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin; (2) Jouni Paavola,
University of Leeds, United Kingdom; and (3) Tatiana Kluvánková-Oravská, CETIP,

Multiple methods in interdisciplinary environmental research

Interdisciplinary environmental research is increasingly characterized by a major methodological shift. It is becoming evident that no single method can overcome the challenges of interdisciplinary research at the interface between social and natural sciences. The call for the use of multiple methods in interdisciplinary research is an increasingly important methodological debate in communities such as ecological economics, political ecology and resilience alliance. In particular, the growing attention on collaborative research requires multi-method application to overcome theoretical but also practical challenges. Building on the successful ESEE summer school series THEMES, the ESEE Summer Institutes introduce innovative theoretical and practical ideas of multi-method application and collaborative research to the education of doctoral and post-doctoral  interdisciplinary environmental researchers. » Read the full article
