We plan events for the purpose of science outreach and to enchance collaboration, such as meetups, sustainability dialogues and the yearly Pathways to Sustainability Conference. The goals of such events include public engagement and stimulating interdisciplinarity between the scientific community and pulic and private stakeholders.
