Our networking activities include cooperation with practitioners and the development of a professional database of stakeholders, networks, projects and resources on inner dimensions and transformation in sustainability. We closely work with different organisations and engage in various networking events to create a platform for sharing and mutual support. Please feel free to sign up for our newsletter below.
Here you can find our Connect Database on existing institutions, stakeholders, networks, projects and resources on the issue of inner dimensions and transformation in sustainability. It is a living document, which is continuously updated. If you would like us to add certain items or information to the database, please contact us!
Cooperation in Practice, Research & Education
