| Pathways Forum #10 | Whose Sustainability? Unpacking decolonization in sustainability science – 27 Sept @ 3PM-5PM CEST
Researchers, policymakers, and Indigenous and local communities alike are recognizing the significance of incorporating diverse and sometimes conflicting knowledge and value systems to effectively address sustainability challenges. What (un)learning is necessary to enhance the autonomy of Global South scientists? How do researchers engage and highlight different visions for the future that are currently excluded in dominant Western paradigms? In practice, the predominance of the Eurocentric scientific paradigm continues to hamper this effort while reinforcing deep social injustices and unequal power relations, leaving many researchers at a loss on how to effectively contribute to more diverse and inclusive approaches.
This webinar explores decolonizing research, focusing on Sustainability Science. It will interest and support researchers who wish to treat decolonization as a process more than a buzzword. Decolonizing research in practice is a nuanced and multifaceted endeavour that involves reexamining and restructuring research practices to challenge and undo the complex and ongoing impacts of colonization.

The Pathways Forum is a bi-monthly online event where researchers from diverse disciplines who engage, or want to engage, with societal actors in processes of adaptive learning to design, implement, and evaluate pathways to sustainability get a chance to reflect on concepts and theories of change, and discuss the practical implications of sustainability science and transdisciplinarity for research practices. Through this webinar series, the Pathways Initiative aims to develop and support agenda-setting, synthesis and capacity building around pathways for sustainability.
