Convened by the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO in partnership with the International Science Council as part of the Ocean Decade Virtual Series, this closing webinar recapped the main issues and questions that arose during a set of regional webinars and revisited key questions of when and how to engage with stakeholders and different types of knowledge.
The session was organized in three parts:
Part 1: Needs and initial recommendations to support innovative co-designed, solution-oriented research for the Ocean Decade
Part 2: How can we recognize complementarities across knowledge systems and support effective interactions?
Part 3: How can we support capacity and resource mobilisation for co-designed Decade actions?
Pre-recorded video presentations:
The importance of co-design: Gabriele Bammer
In this short, lucid video Gabriele Bammer gives her perspective on what makes problems complex and when co-design (working across disciplines and stakeholders) is an appropriate approach to tackle them.
Gabriele Bammer is developing the new discipline of Integration and Implementation Sciences (i2S) to improve research strengths for tackling complex real-world problems through synthesis of disciplinary and stakeholder knowledge, understanding and managing diverse unknowns and providing integrated research support for policy and practice change. This is described in Disciplining Interdisciplinarity: Integration and Implementation Sciences for Researching Complex Real-World Problems (ANU E Press, 2013;) She runs the Integration and Implementation Insights (i2Insights) blog.
She is a Professor at the Research School of Populational Health at The Australian National University and a Senior Fellow at the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies in Potsdam, Germany.
‘The Tarot of Transgressive Research’: Dylan McGarry
In this short video Dylan McGarry presents an original ‘tarot-based’ framework to understand the various roles and responsibilities of the researcher in contemporary times, particularly in the domains of research for development or engaged, co-produced research.
Dylan McGarry is a Senior Researcher at the Environmental Learning Research Centre at Rhodes University. He hosts the emerging Institute of Uncanny Justness and works in the areas of social-ecological justice, transformative social learning, activism, empatheatre and earth jurisprudence. In early 2019 Dylan took up a co-lead role for two major work packages in the Global Challenges Research Programme’s One Ocean Hub. Dylan recently concluded post-doctoral research in the framework of the T-Learning Transformative Knowledge Network, a project within the Transformations to Sustainability programme of the International Science Council.
