Co-design for sustainable development to be discussed at PSC-23 in Taipei

Date: March 31, 2016

The session intends to present and discuss how to apply co-design principles as a mechanism to stimulate and enhance the trans-disciplinary collaboration between scientists and stakeholders to increase the capacity of sustainable development in society.

Sustainable development in society is a challenging process. This requires a society’s social, economic and environmental objectives to be integrated where possible. To handle such complex dimensions and the interactions between them, decision-making and action need a strategic and participatory approach, and coordination among scientists, policy makers and interest groups are necessary. The trans-disciplinary aspect of co-design is increasingly proposed to achieve desirable outcomes and has become a major pillar of the Future Earth initiative. Co-design enables scientists and stakeholders to share knowledge and complement the interdisciplinary experience. ┬áThe symposium, therefore, intends to involve both academic researchers and policy makers to demonstrate such efforts and explore the scope of co-design in sustainable society. The symposium will include several presentations followed by a round-table discussion to facilitate interactions among participants.
