Cooperation between civil society organizations with both ecological and social issues is still rare, and sometimes characterized by reservations. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in particular offer potential for cooperation between organizations and their members on various social and ecological issues.
Against this background, the goal of the transdisciplinary research project is to test and analyze cooperative relationships between different engagement policy actors. To this end, the ideas of “building bridges” and entering into “unusual partnerships” will be experimentally tested in model projects over a period of one year. The transformative learning processes that result from these partnerships will also be examined, as well as the conditions that are conducive and obstructive to them. In addition, recommendations will be formulated for the support and promotion of civil society organizations through environmental policy.
