Building Interdisciplinary Teams & Stakeholder Partnerships
Solving sustainability problems requires unprecedented levels of program integration involving a high degree of interdisciplinary teamwork and robust university-stakeholder partnerships. Our strategy for strengthening sustainability science and practice has two major components. First, all research teams include experts in the social, economic, and ecological dimensions of sustainability challenges as well as researchers skilled in linking knowledge to action (e.g., experts in communication, political science, public policy). Second, these interdisciplinary teams work in close partnership with stakeholders to maximize the relevance and potential value of research for decision-making. Our collaborative approach rests on a foundation of mutual respect, open communication, and a belief in the value of diverse ideas and experiences.
