BRIDGES is a global sustainability science coalition organized within UNESCO’s Management of Social Transformations Programme (MOST). As a humanities-led coalition that is not limited to the humanities, BRIDGES promotes transformative collaborations across academic domains of the arts, humanities, social sciences and natural sciences in partnership with diverse communities.
In June 2023 the BRIDGES Coalition began scoping humanities-led sustainability science projects from different regions around the world that address the realities of vulnerable communities and regional territories impacted by social and environmental pressures.
In an attempt to offer an indicative overview of humanities-led sustainability science projects, a brochure was created in August 2023. Four members of the research initiative “Sharing a Planet in Peril” are featured in BRIDGES’ current project mapping:
Storying Himalayan Multispecies Climes: Indigenous Knowledge and Geopolitics of Climate Change in Highland Asia – Dan Smyer Yü
Rewilding the Anthropocene Studying Shifting Multispecies Relations in a Southern African Conservation Landscape – Michael Bollig
Reading for Change (ReaCh): A Future Fiction Maker Space – Roman Bartosch
Large-Scale REnewable Energy Infrastructures in Africa: From Green Sacrifice Zones to Energy Landscapes of Value? – Clemens Greiner & Britta Klagge
