See below for pdf-Download or klick here for online version.

This workshop examines communication and learning in social networks and the resulting challenges and potentials for strengthening ecologically sustainable development. How do networks foster communication and (collective) learning?
What are the different approaches and particular challenges to gathering data of this sort? What are the strengths and limitations of adopting a network approach to learning? To what extent can one link social networks to ideas of sustainable development? Particularly, but by no means exclusively, the workshop will focus on networks in the context of policy making and governance. Taking into account different possible spatial and administrative levels – from the very local to the global – and different network approaches, the workshop will provide an arena for cross-disciplinary learning on this important topic. The workshop is unique in scope in that it brings together scholars from diverse sub-disciplines and fields such as sociology, social network analysis, actor-network theory, political science (governance networks), cultural sociology (e. g. “network society”), anthropology, globalization and cultural studies, management and organizational science, and education. Doing so, the workshop will explore new avenues of sustainability-oriented research.
