Engaging to solve the grand challenge of sustainability: Interdisciplinary workshop on participatory and engaged research – Nottingham 15th and 16th February 2018

24 Dec 2017 1:48 PM | Erik van Raaij

We are organising a workshop structured around two distinct days in February 2018. This will be a small-scale event in order to maximise the experience for everyone involved, hence places on each day will be limited. Registration is mandatory. 

Day 1 is specifically for PhD students and early career researchers in management who do research across the fields of sustainability, CSR and business ethics. We invite those who are passionate about driving change for sustainability through their research and want to learn about participatory and engaged methodological approaches.  The day will consist of interactive masterclasses from speakers from disciplines outside management, a panel of editors’ discussion and collective reflections around key questions identified by participants. The event aims to be a platform for discussing the “how” of conducting such types of research - details that often remain absent from publications. We see this event as an opportunity to support young researchers in our field and encourage mentoring within the community. 

Day 2 will be focused on advancing sustainability in production and consumption networks. The audience for this day are academics at all stages of their careers who identify with this theme. Day 2 is an agenda-shaping event and will require some preparation so that we engage in constructive discussions – without being too onerous. We will seek to surface the key research questions for the field, particularly around how to move towards meaningful change. This will entail reflecting on what assumptions/theories and research questions we should be asking but also on who we should engage with.

Further details about the event and logistical details are available on the event page here.
