The International Transdisciplinarity Conference (ITD) 2021, “Creating Spaces and Cultivating Mindsets for Learning and Experimentation”, provides a platform for engagement, discussion, and action that links transdisciplinary research, (un)learning, and practice.

Crises unleashed by climate change and, more recently, the COVID-​19 pandemic, urge us to finding sustainable solutions to social, cultural, political, economic, ecological and, health challenges. The crisis has shown that existing modes of overcoming challenges are limited. There is a call to move beyond what we already know and do. Building spaces and cultivating mindsets for learning and experimentation are keys for creating these new possibilities. Real-​world labs, living labs, social innovations, transition experiments serve as inspirations for the design and implementation of this conference.

As a virtual forum, the ITD Conference 2021 will bring together individuals, communities, and institutions from across the globe. The goal is to advance transdisciplinary concepts and methodologies while strengthening their potential for addressing societal challenges by connecting educators, researchers, practitioners, industry and business representatives, funding agencies, decision-makers and students across sectors and disciplines.

The conference information will be updated regularly on the td-​net website. Stay informed via twitter #itdconf2021.
