Inhalt: How to foster community impact? What makes a community resilient? Who needs to engage in climate adaptation action? This transdisciplinary community impact research project focuses on the intersection of climate resilience, communities and social innovations. The setting of the project is Grenada, a Small Island State in the Southern Caribbean (Lesser Antilles) in which communities face continuous challenges to adapt to changing climatic conditions and threats to their livelihoods. In their quest to become ‘climate resilient communities’, Islanders in the Caribbean are currently struggling to mitigate and adapt to changing climatic conditions and impactful catastrophes, such as hurricanes, earthquakes and the pandemic. Building on results generated in the previous two years, student teams will focus on co-creating solution-oriented transferable knowledge for a local community living in a marine-protected area. A concrete entrepreneurial training interventions will be implemented with student mentors (on-site) and regional partners, for example the GIZ Team on St.Lucia.

Inhalt: This transdisciplinary learning research project focuses on the intersection of learning, politics and aspirations for regenerative futures. The setting of this research project is an international capacity building project called Politics4Future led by Leuphana University with five other international universities aimed at building capacities of youth enrolled in higher education on Sustainable Development Goal 4.7. The six universities involved in the project are: 1. Leuphana University (Germany), 2. Heidelberg University of Education (Germany), 3. University of Crete (Greece), 4. Rhodes University (South Africa), 5. York University (Canada) 6. Earth Charter Center at University for Peace (Costa Rica) The six universities are operating within unique cultural, political and social settings. While Leuphana is leading the discourse with its focus on sustainability, the other partners for example Rhodes University are focusing on decolonial learning whereas York University is integrating diverse indigenous voices in its education. The students will get an opportunity to work with the project partners in addressing following questions through transdisciplinary research: 1)What role does politics play in fostering these critical forms of social learning? 2)How does regenerative future look like ? 3) What role does politics have in bringing transformative change through learning? 4) How does diversity of voices contribute to regenerative futures and what is the politics behind whose voices and knowledge is discussed? 5)What other critical forms of social learning are existing in the context of the partners to foster regenerative futures. These questions will be researched by students in this transdisciplinary research to spark new knowledge on regenerative futures through a Global South-North lens.
