This project is focused on environmental governance. It aims to bring together case studies from Sweden, Italy, Slovenia, and Croatia to explore differences and similarities in terms of context, the process and the outcomes. To this end the project team has established partnerships with organizations, individuals and institutes who are helping us in different ways to achieve the project objectives. We are thankful for the support given and would like to acknowledge here the type of contribution and input given:
Stockholm Environmental Institute is our co-organizer of the first Symposium held in Stockholm in May 2015 titled "Environmental Governance In An Increasingly Complex World: An Interdisciplinary Exchange In Adaption, Collaborative Learning And Knowledge Integration".
The Research Center of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts (Slovenia) is our co-organizer of the Second Symposium held in Ljubljana in May 2016 titled "Public Private Partnerships for the Governance and Management of Ecosystem Services: Exploring Current Challenges and Potentials of Common-Pool Resources"
We have collaborated with the Faculty of Humanities of Utrecht University (the Netherlands) and during the period from Mary 2015 to April 2016 together with prof. Tine de Moor prepared a round of expert meetings focused on collective action in the context of use and governance of natural resources in Europe.
We have collaborated with the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, the City of Malmö, and the University of Copenhagen (Denmark) on the organization of the event “Rethinking Urban Nature To Promote Human Well-Being And Livelihoods” held in Malmö in January 2018. During that event the role of civil society and informal movements in organizing for urban well-being was addressed. We talked about issues and opportunities for civil society to take up a more prominent role in be involved in small scale urban projects seeking to manage and maintain urban green areas. The event was funded under the MOVIUM and Urban Futures (SLU) and was led by prof. Christopher Raymond.
