It’s now been just over a year since my role as Sustainable Cities Research Officer at the Victorian Eco-Innovation Lab (VEIL) began with the two corresponding websites – SustainableMelbourne.com and SustainableCitiesNet.com – established a few months later. Both these sites are now becoming quite comprehensive and sophisticated. They’re also being noticed by others, such as the the Forum on Science and Innovation for Sustainable Development. See below for more details.
The Forum on Science and Innovation for Sustainable Development is an attempt to outline the burgeoning field. Rather than looking broadly at sustainability, the Forum focuses on the way in which science and innovation can be conducted and applied to meet human needs while preserving the life support systems of the planet. It highlights people and programs that are studying nature-society interactions and applying the resulting knowledge to create a sustainability transition around the world.
