Co-Creating Sustainability Communication

The world’s sustainability problems urgently require new kinds of interaction between science and society.

In three workshops we worked together as citizens, science communicators, researchers, and other stakeholders in moving beyond mainstream science communication to co-create an interdisciplinary framework for progressive sustainability science communication in Denmark.

The three workshops was 1) identify the state of the art in sustainability communication, 2) test how mixing art and science can lead to new communication formats, and 3) map out the next steps for progressive sustainability science communication.
