Join us for a Webinar in our new CST series of Webinars on:  Complexity & Resilience insights in a time of transition

This series brings together scientists, practitioners and societal actors who use the frameworks of complexity and resilience thinking in their daily work to make sense of the complex dynamics of change and transformative processes. There will be a special focus on how these ideas and practices are used in current times and how local and regional processes and perspectives are being shaped by applying the theoretical concepts and tools for fostering more resilient organisations, communities and decision-making strategies.

Discussants: Prof Joachim Sturmberg and Dr Bruno Kissling
Moderator: Dr Rika Preiser
