MOST School on Sustainability Science
© All Rights Reserved
This MOST School on Sustainability Science, organized by the UNESCO Office n Jakarta and its partners, from 1 to 3 February 2017 in Padang, West Sumatra, will tackle a critical question for Indonesia and the wider world: how can we use scientific knowledge for more effective policy and action to advance natural and social well-being for all?
The first MOST School in Indonesia will focus on sustainability science – a new transdisciplinary field that has emerged in response to the complexity of sustainability problems, from climate change and biodiversity loss to ecosystem degradation and persistent poverty and inequality.
The MOST School will use the experience and knowledge derived from the ongoing pilot projects in various parts of the country that use the principles of sustainability science to find effective pathways of achieving sustainable transformation for communities affected by environmental degradation.
It will gather researchers, experts, activists, and policymakers from across Indonesia, and is a collaborative effort between the UNESCO Office n Jakarta, the MOST National Committee within the Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI), Andalas University in Padang, West Sumatra and the University of Southampton (United Kingdom).
The MOST School is organized in the framework of the Indonesian Funds-in-Trust Project “A Sustainable Future: Supporting Indonesia’s Strategies to Address the Social Implications of Climate Change.”
MOST Schools are an innovative capacity-building arm of UNESCO’s Management of Social Transformations (MOST) Programme, designed to bridge the science-policy gap in various areas of UNESCO’s social development mandate.
