How Do We Want To Live Well Together? A New Eco-Social Contract

Date: 10 Nov 2021

How Do We Want To Live Well Together? A New Eco-Social Contract
UNRISD, together with the Green Economy Coalition (GEC), is proud to announce the launch of a new initiative: the Global Research and Action Network for a New Eco-Social Contract in order to explore the promise of a new eco-social contract as a way of responding to pressing social and ecological challenges.

The network will be a space for dialogue, debate, co-construction and action around the meaning of a new eco-social contract; good practices for its design; and accountability frameworks for its application. It will bring together research, practice, advocacy and policy decision-making communities working for social, climate and environmental justice in a progressive knowledge and action alliance.
