The earth system governance research community is at a crossroads. The existing Science and Implementation Plan has provided useful guidance to the research community for the past decade. However, it is due to be replaced with a new research plan at the 2018 Utrecht Conference on Earth System Governance. What have we achieved so far and what new themes and debates can we expect over the next ten years? It is time to take stock of research findings and engage with the new research agenda that has started to emerge.
The 2018 Utrecht Winter School on Earth System Governance is designed to function as an incubator for early career researchers working with the new earth system governance research agenda. The aim is to critically reflect on the new research agenda and start taking it forward by facilitating early career researchers’ work connected to this agenda.
The Winter School is immediately followed by the 2018 Utrecht Conference on Earth System Governance, held 5-7 November, in order to allow participants in the Winter School to also take part in the Utrecht Conference (separate conference registration is required).
