SDSN Germany and its members are part of the global network SDSN, which has been promoting scientific and technological expertise for sustainable development under the auspices of the United Nations Secretary-General since 2012. Together with its members and partners, SDSN Germany supports the advancement and implementation of the German Sustainability Strategy and connects current scientific debates with opportunities for concrete governance and implementation practices. In addition, SDSN Germany aims for a European and international perspective and advocates for a better coordination of sustainability processes on a national, European and global level. The network is particularly committed to achieving the goals of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (Sustainable Development Goals, SDGs) and those of the Paris Climate Agreement. 

Exchange between science and practice on transdisciplinary research 

“We are pleased that ISOE can contribute to the network with its expertise in transdisciplinary sustainability research and its research projects at the regional, national and international level,” says Flurina Schneider, scientific director of ISOE – Institute for Social-Ecological Research in Frankfurt. “We are also curious about the upcoming exchange, especially with regard to transdisciplinary dialogue and cooperation formats that involve politics, science, business and society and which play an important role within the network.” ISOE has been working with the transdisciplinary research mode since its foundation in 1989, bringing together different actors on the topic of sustainable development.
