SSPP is introducing Academic Programs in Sustainability, a new data discovery tool that allows users to explore a growing database of more than 100 worldwide educational institutions, offering more than 150 degree granting sustainability programs. The database aims to increase the visibility of these programs to the sustainability community.
Readers can search and sort the Academic Programs in Sustainability database by institution name, program/degree, or location. As part of SSPP’s mission to enhance scholarly communication, education, and research, it will be a part of the Researcher’s Toolkit alongside other free, open access data and resources such as Sustainability Experts, Sustainability Datasets from U.S. Government, Sustainability Dissertations, and Featured Datasets visualizations.

Wageningen UR (University & Research centre) looks for a post-doc researcher who will support the process of developing multi-scale participatory scenarios for a number of case studies in Latin America and Europe, relating to a range of issues importantly including deforestation, biodiversity loss and climate adaptation/mitigation. Three large European projects, focusing on
climate adaptation, biodiversity, and land use change, all seek to develop integrated scenarios of land use
change through linking models and stakeholder-driven products. All projects are strongly interdisciplinary and demand knowledge integration and knowledge co-production. » Read the full article
The conference offers an opportunity for people to meet in a different environment, and to find points of agreement and convergence between each other. This should help them to focus their own efforts while keeping in mind the complex nature of the de-growth movement as a whole. People with different areas of interest and levels of experience can come together and combine their knowledge. This includes research (universities, study groups, lines of research), experimentation (good practices, [permacultori], networds of economic solidarity), communication (activists, filmmakers, giornalists and other media figures), and
artistic expression (actors, musicians, writers and poets). » Read the full article
