Transdisciplinary Sustainability Research and Citizen Science: Options for Mutual Learning

Transdisciplinary research can learn from the experiences and potential of citizen science and vice versa. In this article the authors canvas lessons learned from these fields to contribute to the further development of sustainability science in Future Earth. They focus on three key challenges: knowledge integration, quality criteria, and normativity. In doing so, the authors aim to stimulate exchange between the communities within Future Earth, transdisciplinary sustainability research and citizen science.

The article is published Open Access in the peer-reviewed inter- and transdisciplinary journal GAIA.
