Pivot and Leap: The urgent need to integrate research, policy and practice for transformations to sustainability

17 November 2022
13:00 – 14:30 UTC

COP27 venue

A moderated panel discussion organized by the Transformations to Sustainability Programme of the Belmont Forum, NORFACE and International Science Council.

In the final days of COP27 in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt, where crucial decisions need to be made to help humanity pivot away from destructive trajectories and leap towards effective, equitable solutions that help minimize the worst effects of climate change, calls for societal transformations are louder than ever.

This panel discussion will distill key insights gained over nearly a decade of research on societal transformations towards sustainability to address the all-important ‘how’ question: how to bring the key lessons from research into policy and practice to foster transformative action at all levels of society and around the world.
