Announcement: new Transformations to Sustainability Programme and Preparatory Call for Seed Funding

The International Social Science Council (ISSC) is pleased to announce
the launch of a new global research funding programme on
transformations to sustainability.

The Transformations to Sustainability Programme aims to build
scientific understanding of transformative social change in the face
of global change and sustainability. More specifically, the programme
seeks to:

- Increase the social science contributions necessary to craft more
effective, durable and equitable solutions to the problems of global
change and sustainability
- Increase the use of such knowledge by policy makers, practitioners,
the private sector, citizens and activists

This initiative is intended as a major contribution to the work of
Future Earth, a global research platform that provides knowledge and
support to accelerate transformations to a sustainable world. Future
Earth is co-sponsored by the members of the International Science and
Technology Alliance for Global Sustainability.

Please find attached the programme description with details of the
first call for seed funding. We would be very grateful indeed if you
would share this call and programme information as widely as possible
throughout your networks, on your website and through your social
media channels.
Should you have any questions about the programme or the call please
don't hesitate to contact the team at
Many thanks and very best wishes,
