Participate in a new survey on the social and political role of sustainability research

A new questionnaire seeks to gauge how scientists make sense of the “political and normative dimensions” of their work.

Researchers focusing on questions around global change and sustainability often navigate urgent, complex and value-laden societal issues. A new survey, developed through Utrecht University in the Netherlands, will assess how scientists view their relationships and responsibilities to potentially controversial issues and gauge their thoughts on solution-oriented research.

The survey takes about 10 minutes to complete and is designed for a wide range of researchers working around global sustainability, including natural and social scientists. It will contribute to the research of Sandra van der Hel, a PhD candidate at Utrecht University and research fellow with the Earth System Governance project.
