The theme of the conference in Turku is Co-producing knowledge for sustainability.
While the plenary sessions focus on the conference theme, the 28 workshops coordinated by scholars cover various aspects of environmental social science, from the local to the global and from empirical papers over policy-relevant papers to conceptual and theoretical contributions. As is the tradition of NESS, the workshops are at the center of the conference, with plenty of time devoted to presentation and discussion of submitted papers. The workshops can convene throughout the conference.
