Researchers from the SRC have since 2012 worked closely with the largest corporations in the global seafood industry in a quest to make it more sustainable. The collaboration resulted in the Seafood Business for Ocean Stewardship initiative, the first time companies from Asia, Europe and the US have joined forces and committed to work on an agenda for change.
Co-design and co-production of knowledge is a hallmark of our work, regardless if it is informal dialogues with small communities or senior executives of large international companies.
This interaction shapes our research focus and helps us become better sustainability scientists. We understand more of the world and can ask more informed questions. We get access to better data and can develop novel concepts and approaches that shape our investigations.
We develop new concepts, tools and approaches for a more resilient and equitable future.
Building and expanding on the legacy of resilience thinking, we integrate an understanding of ecosystem dynamics with human behaviour, global financial markets, gender, equity and power, and much more.
We have a long history of helping to navigate the unknown and bringing together the right people. Examples include:
