Engaging in Transdisciplinary Climate Research (11.00-11.50 am PST)

March 8 @ 2:00 pm - 2:50 pm



Conducting climate change research requires individuals from across disciplines to work together on solutions. But it’s not always simple – researchers are often trained within specific disciplines with techniques, approaches and customs that differ from others working towards similar solutions. So where do we begin?

In this session, Drs. Robert VanWynsberghe (Education) and Naoko Ellis (Applied Science) will explore the topic of transdisciplinary approaches to climate research by working with participants to:
– Discuss the rationale for a transdisciplinary approach
– Identify who the actors are in transdisciplinary research
– Explore how to initiate conversations with various actors about transdisciplinary approaches
– Consider how we show up in these conversations ourselves
– Reflect on how to create innovative spaces where transdisciplinary approaches can thrive

Online event hosted by the University of British Columbia’s Climate Solutions Research Collective.
Dr. Rob VanWynsberghe and Dr. Naoko Ellis presenters.
