The European Association of Development Research and Training Institutes (EADI) in collaboration with the International Social Science Council in Paris and the Center for Development Research, University of Bonn, and the Bonn Sustainability Portal are pleased to invite you to the Bonn launch of the World Social Science Report 2013 taking place on 03 November 2014.

The opening of the 2014 global climate summit in New York was met with widespread citizen protests worldwide broadly labeled by international media houses the “people’s climate march’. People are demanding economic and political justice and for the scaling up of politics to match the challenge of climate change. Social science needs to be at the heart of understanding and responding to global challenges such as climate change, pollution, resource limits and planetary boundaries to economic growth.

With contributions from 150 scholars from around the world, the report issues an urgent call to the international social science community to work together more effectively with each other, with colleagues from other fields of science, and with users of research to deliver solutions-oriented knowledge for today’s most pressing environmental problems. It calls for a transformative social science that is:

  • bolder in reframing and reinterpreting global environmental change as a social problem
  • better at infusing social science insights into real-world problem-solving
  • bigger in terms of having more social scientists to focus on global environmental change
  • different in the way it thinks about and does research

The launch brings together distinguished social science and environment experts to present and discuss with each other and the audience the key messages of the report and possible policy implications.
